Meet Dr. Kardosh

IMG_7790LeeAnn was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit.  She studied physiology at Michigan State University, then attended University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry on a Navy scholarship.   Following graduation in 2005,  LeeAnn was stationed at Naval Medical Center, San Diego where she completed a one year general practice residency.  With the advanced training in general dentistry, she was selected to be the sole dentist onboard USS Germantown (LSD 42).  During her three year assignment onboard the Germantown, LeeAnn completed a deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and earned her surface warfare device.

Upon release from active duty, LeeAnn continued her career in general dentistry in southern California.  Although she enjoyed general dentistry, LeeAnn decided she wanted to focus on endodontics.  After graduation from The Endodontic Residency Program at Long Beach VA, LeeAnn moved to Arizona to practice endodontics. 
LeeAnn continues to serve in the Navy Reserves.  In her spare time, LeeAnn enjoys traveling to learn about different cultures and histories.  When she can’t get away physically, she’ll escape through a book.
