Dr. Roth served as a general dentist for three years in the United States Navy. Her duty stations included Parris Island, SC, and Okinawa, Japan. It was during her humanitarian missions, working with children in Thailand and the Philippines, that Dr. Roth realized her true calling to pediatric dentistry. Dr. Roth completed her two year pediatric dental specialty training at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora, Colorado. During her residency, she worked closely with hematology and oncology specialists in preparation for her graduate student research project which later earned her a distinguished award by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Upon the conclusion of her residency, she was stationed in Naples, Italy where she was the sole pediatric dental provider for children of all branches of active duty service members serving in Italy. Her two year European tour earned her a distinguished Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal for her professionalism, compassion, and excellence to care. Her final year was served at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina treating children of active duty Marines and Sailors.
In her spare time, Dr. Roth is an avid traveler, always looking for a new adventure. She also enjoys running, reading, painting, and watching high school and college basketball.
Dr. Roth, a Diplomate of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry, is excited to be back in her hometown providing pediatric dental care to the children of central Illinois.
