Dr. Nadia Barakat
Dr. Barakat, Pediatrician

Dr. Nadia was born and raised in Southern California and recently moved to San Francisco. During dental school at Loma Linda University, Dr. Nadia enjoyed treating her pediatric patients and promoting good oral hygiene to a young population. She was also inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon national dental honor society after graduating in the top ten percent of her class.

She then completed her specialty training in pediatric dentistry at Loma Linda University, where she gained experience in the full breadth of pediatric dental care. In her free time, Nadia enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants and spending time with her husband.

Dr. Nadia is excited to bring her passion to serve the Bay Area!

Dr. Irene Ching
Pediatric Doctor

Dr. Irene is a native of San Francisco, CA.

She left California for the east coast to complete her undergraduate studies at Georgetown University. During college, she discovered her passion for working with children while volunteering in the pediatric oncology unit, teaching English to immigrant children in Washington DC, and traveling to Vietnam on a dental mission trip to provide oral hygiene education at elementary schools. Dedicated to pursuing a profession where she could empower children through both education and prevention, she returned home to the Bay Area and earned her dental degree at UCSF. She went on to complete her specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at USC and Long Beach Memorial/Miller Children's Hospital where she focused on advanced behavior management, treatment of dental trauma, and caring for medically complex children.

Dr. Irene is a board certified pediatric dentist and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and California Society of Pediatric Dentistry. She feels very blessed to be able to provide dental care for children in the community where she grew up. She enjoys getting to know each family and is passionate about providing personalized care that meets each child's individual needs. Dr. Irene strives to give every child a positive and fun dental experience.

In her free time, she enjoys Peloton workouts, yoga, baking, creating latte art, and exploring new restaurants.
