Meet mirta Roe, DDS
Endodontist in Murrieta
Dr. Roe was born and raised in New York City where she went to Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan. She attended Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and was granted early admission to Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry, graduating in 1994. During her junior year of dental school, Dr. Roe joined the United States Navy. During her six years in the Navy, Dr. Roe continued her dental education by completing a General Practice Residency at the Oakland Naval Medical Center.
She enjoyed her time in the Navy, having had the chance to travel to Hong Kong, Korea, mainland Japan, and Okinawa. She also had the opportunity to complete numerous non-dental training courses in order to support the Navy’s overseas mission. She received certification in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS), Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and even completed the Combat Casualty Care Course (C4). All of these classes were tremendous training opportunities not typically available to civilian dentists.
In 2000, Dr. Roe received her Honorable Discharge, having attained the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Although she enjoyed the Navy and General Dentistry, her true passion was the field of Endodontics. She had the chance to further her dental education by attending two more years of specialty training. Dr. Roe received her Certificate of Specialty in Endodontics from the Veterans Administration, Long Beach Medical Center in 2002.
Dr. Roe and her husband have lived in the area since 1998 and have enjoyed seeing the growth in the Temecula Valley. They have two children who occupy most of their time. Family activities include Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Christian Youth Theater, camping/off-roading, and involvement at Cornerstone Community Church. Dr. Roe works three days a week which allows her to devote herself fully to her passion for Endodontics while balancing the opportunity to be a mom.
