Dr. Debbie Yim was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in the north suburbs of the city. After high school she wanted to venture out, move somewhere new, and attended Tulane University in New Orleans. She graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Cell and Molecular Biology, and minors in French and Business. Dr. Debbie always had an interest in health sciences, and went on to pursue dentistry at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. During the summers in college and dental school, she went on dental mission trips to Mexico to provide dental care to underserved communities. During these trips she worked closely with children and discovered her love for pediatric dentistry. After graduating dental school in 2016, Dr. Debbie returned to New Orleans to complete her specialty in Pediatric Dentistry at Louisiana State University School of Dentistry and Children’s Hospital New Orleans. In 2019 she became Board Certified with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.
In her free time, she loves to watch sports (mostly football), go out to eat, travel, and work out. She loves living in a city with a vibrant culinary and festival scene. Dr. Debbie has been working as a pediatric dentist in the New Orleans area since completing her residency, and is very excited to join the team at Northshore Pediatric Dentistry. She looks forward to getting to know the patients and families of the practice, and the entire North Shore community!
