Evelyn Maruko is a graduate of the University of Southern California, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, and Northwestern University’s Department of Orthodontics. She holds memberships in 7 professional societies and study clubs and has over 20 years of experience in orthodontics, exclusively. She has opted for a small private practice located in Anaheim Hills, CA in order to maximize direct case involvement and attention to detail with each of her patients. As a lover of art, photography, and being a Psychobiology major in Psychology, she has allocated the past three years to passionately studying Jungian Psychology. She recently earned certification as a Jungian Life Coach which she pursued out of personal interest but has found the holistic approach to be very helpful for her patients.

“I was exposed to the arts at a young age. My mother was an artist and my father liked musical theater, ballroom dance, and blasting classical music. Dance has been in my heart since I was in elementary school. While in college and dental school, I continued to dance. I was one of three choreographers for the Harvard Medical School Second Year Show and was invited to join a precision dance team but unfortunately had to turn it down because of studies and finances. In the past few years, I have performed at the Orange County Fair and Dance Long Beach, and done recitals. Now, I’m getting in shape with yoga and pilates.
I learned photography in dental school. Photography has taken me to wonderful far off places, and reminds me to appreciate nature and remember how fortunate I am to live in the United States. I’m also interested in painting and design. You can see some of my work hanging in the office.”
