Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?

While in high school, Dr. Bragg joined the dental science competition run by the Health Occupational Students of America. While she didn’t have the resources to make it easily accessible, she was able to track down a cheap dental science book and start studying. She ended up placing 4th in the state! While preparing, she also shadowed a few dentists, and the work just started to click for her. She loved the idea of using your hands, learning about people, and creating a positive, calming environment for everyone who comes in.

At 16, Dr. Bragg attended the Future Dentist Club at Baylor College of Dentistry, where there were a lot of kind, self-sacrificing dentist mentors who made every meeting feel like home. After attending a SPEP (Summer Predental Enrichment Program) for dentistry at Baylor as a senior, the rest was history.

Today, Dr. Bragg truly values the patient experience and meeting people from all walks of life. She’s always striving to create a direct, positive impact for those in need. Needless to say, she believes dentistry is the perfect fit for her strengths and interests!

Where Did You Study Dentistry?

After attending the University of Texas at Dallas, Dr. Bragg pursued her dental doctorate at Texas A&M (Baylor) College of Dentistry. She has received multiple accolades, including the Bronze Medal for Excellence in Teaching & Education and the Warren A. Parker Award for Outstanding Contributions in Community Dentistry, presented by The Department of Public Health Sciences. She’s also traveled to Kenya, Zambia, and Jamaica to provide dental care to underserved communities. Today, she is Invisalign certified, a member of the American Dental Association, and a dedicated mentor to various pre-dental students.

Outside of the Dental Office,
What Do You Like to Do?

Dr. Bragg is a first generation Cuban American, her mother’s family having come here in the 1960’s as refugees. She met her fiancé (also a dentist) while attending dental school, and they have a standard Poodle named Sophie! As for hobbies, she really enjoys traveling, trying new cuisines, dancing (salsa especially – she’s no expert but likes to pretend she knows what she’s doing), spending quality time with family and friends, going to concerts, and trying out new skincare routines. She is very passionate about being present in every moment and making the most out of the time she’s been given.
