Helping people is in Dr. Robinson’s family legacy. Both of her parents and three of her siblings are all doctors and deeply involved in healthcare.
As the youngest child, she was able to see the different aspects of the care areas everyone in her family entered. She knew she loved the one-on-one nature of general practice that her parents provided, but also sought the hands-on aspect that she saw in her siblings' surgical fields. Dentistry was the sweet spot between the two.
After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine in 2013, she moved to San Francisco to complete a year of dental residency at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Hospital. Once she had honed her clinical skills, she moved to Virginia to work at a private practice where she got a ton of experience treating everything from cavities to TMJ disorders.
In favor of better weather and the Bay Area she loved so much from her college years at Stanford University, Dr. Robinson moved back to San Francisco in 2015 to work at a community health clinic.
Today, she splits her time between working full-time at Washington Square Park Dental and teaching at University of the Pacific's dental school in the city. She loves the mix of practicing in an academic setting at UOP, while also helping her patients in North Beach, who often are just settling down into the city and looking for a dentist here.
Her favorite part of treating patients is getting to know people on a personal level, especially in the Bay Area where patients come from all over the world and from different backgrounds. She loves Washington Square Park Dental because the atmosphere automatically relaxes patients and she has great assistants that help her deliver the highest quality of care. That makes her job easier and more fun because she has more time to talk to patients, learn about their lives, and take care of their teeth.
I love Washington Square Park’s atmosphere because patients automatically relax. Once patients are comfortable, it’s fun to talk with them and take care of their teeth.
When she’s not at work, Dr. Robinson loves being outside. Since playing field hockey at Stanford, she’s stayed close to the sport and still plays as often as she can by playing with her club team at the Olympic Club and coaching at a local high school.
She also enjoys trail running and cycling and is learning how to surf. During the winter months, she loves going to Tahoe and skiing as much as she can. In the city, you can find her hunting for great live music and delicious food at new restaurants.
