Dr. Patti Panucci
Dr. Patti Panucci thinks she was fated to be an orthodontist. Born the third of four daughters in 1975 in Pittsburgh, PA, she demonstrated an unusual interest in teeth from a very early age. Even today, she has never had a cavity and does not have a single filling. After her family’s relocation to Louisville, KY, she enrolled at Ball State University (David Letterman’s alma mater), where she was a member of the Division I field hockey team and received a B.S. in biology. Then, it was off to the University of Louisville School of Dentistry for four years, where she graduated with a DMD degree (May, 2000) among the Top 10 in her class. Following that, she headed west to Los Angeles to complete her three-year residency at one of the top-ranked orthodontic programs in the country – the University of Southern California. Along with her certificate in orthodontics, Dr. Panucci earned a master’s degree in craniofacial biology. She fell in love with Southern California beach life and decided that this was where her future lay. Beach Braces opened its doors in Manhattan Beach in 2005, fulfilling Dr. Panucci’s life-long dream of owning her own practice.
When you meet Dr. Panucci, you will notice that she loves to smile. She’d like to make smiling a contagious habit by helping others feel confident about their smiles. She prides herself on treating her patients with the utmost interest and consideration while ensuring that all orthodontic treatment is tailored to each patient’s needs. In an effort to keep up with the ever-changing world of technology and great advances in orthodontic care, Dr. Panucci regularly attends numerous training and educational seminars.
