Why Did You Want to Become a Dentist?

Dr. Moeckel’s stepfather was a dentist, and he was someone who she always respected and wanted to emulate in her earlier years. Eventually, she chose to embark down the same career path as him – and several years later, it’s still one of the best decisions she ever made!


Where Did You Study Dentistry?

After attending Moorhead State University, Dr. Moeckel completed her dental doctorate at the University of Minnesota. She is extremely passionate about continuing education and has taken a great deal of advanced training following graduation. She is a Fellow with Implant Seminars, having attended their advanced courses, as well as a member of Spear Study Clubs. Some of the topics she’s focused on include:

  • CEREC (including not only learning, but mentoring other dentists in the technology)
  • Surgical Guide Fabrication with CEREC
  • Esthetic Restorations, Crowns & Veneers
  • Pediatric Dentistry
  • All-On-4 & Similar Prosthetics
  • Dental Sleep Medicine
  • Endodontics

She is currently a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and CDocs.

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

At home, Dr. Moeckel has two teenage boys. One of her biggest passions aside from dentistry is fitness. She is an avid triathlete and considers San Diego the best training grounds around! She has spent countless hours cycling, running outdoors, swimming in the bays, and racing over ten marathons, a half-distance triathlon, and one full Ironman so far, with more to come in the future. Triathlon training is a way of life and integral to who she is as a person for sure.

Something you may not know about Dr. Moeckel: she is also an author with one published novel out so far, which is the first in a trilogy about passion and life’s journey!
