Dr. Little grew up in the Philippines. Her family moved to the U.S. when she was 18, and she proceeded to study electrical engineering at Virginia Tech. She then spent six years working as a design engineer. She loved everything from the creative process of building a 200-foot automated robot to the tedious minutiae of soldering a circuit board; however, the time spent in front of a computer screen or designing electronics quickly revealed a missing piece to her experience: the human element.Read More
She entered graduate school to seek other fields to which her technical skills could apply. An introduction to biomaterials — the ingredients for tissue and organ replacement, drug delivery, adhesives and dental implants – immediately piqued her interest. It was a natural realization that dentistry was a career path where a finely-honed engineering skill, like prototyping small circuit boards, would complement her abilities to understand and interact with people.
Dr. Little received a graduate degree from Johns Hopkins University and her dental degree from the University of Maryland Dental School. She completed a General Practice Residency program at Jersey City Medical Center upon completion of her dental education.
Dr. Camille Little was named to the 40 Under 40 list of 2017. This list honors the best 40 dentists under the age of 40 renowned for medical innovations, volunteer work and philanthropy or simply their commitment to their outstanding patient care.
