Training and Personal Background
Dr. Levine earned her DDS degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in 1999, and shortly thereafter moved with her young family to Southern California. Dr. Levine’s career began, however, not with dentistry, but in the Humanities. A native of southern Germany, she earned her master’s degree in Italian and French linguistics and English literature in 1990 at the University of Heidelberg. Through the study of great literature and the nuances of language, she gained insights into aspects of human communication and developed an intercultural sensitivity that has served her well over the years. After moving to the U.S., she was able to study the natural sciences at the University of Texas at Austin and realize her long-time dream of becoming a dentist.
Her husband, Glenn Levine, is a faculty member at the University of California, Irvine, and they have three beautiful children. In her free time, Dr. Levine is passionate about outdoor activities such as hiking and running. She also loves taking long walks with her family and their dogs at the Huntington Beach Dog Beach.
