Dr. Amina Chaudhry attended one of the most prestigious dental schools in India, graduating with her bachelor’s degree in dental surgery in May 2013. She was then accepted at the UCLA School of Dentistry, where she completed an advanced study program for international dentists and received her Doctorate in Dental Surgery (DDS).
Dr. Chaudhry regularly completes continuing education courses in order to stay at the forefront of the dental field. She is also a member of several dental organizations, including:
- Orange County Dental Academy
- Orange County Academy of Aesthetic Dentistry
- Regenerative Solutions Implant Study Group
- Spears Study Group
Dr. Chaudhry took over Classic Smiles Dentistry from Dr. Donald Tormey in 2017, and she is excited to continue a great tradition of providing quality dental care for all her patients.
Dr. Donald Tormey feels that dentistry is unique in that he is able to make a change in a person’s life through treatment and see the results almost immediately. The patient enters with a problem or in pain, and in a short time, they leave the office cured and without pain. It is a rewarding transformation for Dr. Tormey to witness.
Dr. Tormey’s patients respond very positively to the care they receive and sincerely show their appreciation. Most of them are like family to him, and he has seen generations of families grow up in his practice and has become part of their families — attending weddings, graduations, bar mitzvahs and, yes, even funerals.
Dr. Tormey became a dentist because he was strongly influenced by a dentist during his teenage years. This dentist taught Dr. Tormey the importance of being gentle, caring and concerned for each patient’s welfare.
Dr. Tormey loves his patients; he cannot imagine being without them, and that is why he never intends to retire! It is a profession that keeps changing and improving. New innovations emerge all the time, and he feels it is exciting to be a part of it.
