Hello from our Tots to Teens Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics! We’re so happy that you’ve stumbled upon our dental practice in Laredo, TX, and our little corner of the internet. We know you have many options when it comes to your child’s health care, let alone dental care, so we feel grateful for the opportunity to let you know a little bit more about us and what we do.
Our practice is led by four friendly, experienced dental professionals who love working with children and helping them achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. Here’s a little bit about each of them!
Who We Are
Joanna Ayala, DMD
Known for her caring demeanor, Dr. Ayala graduated cum laude with her dental doctorate at Boston University. She then went on to complete her specialty certificate in pediatric dentistry at Miami Children’s Hospital. Dr. Ayala is proud to be a member of several different organizations related to children’s dentistry, including the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
Yvonne Felli, DMD
Originally from Ghana, Dr. Felli received a Bachelor of Dental Surgery from the University of Ghana Dental School before obtaining her dental doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. She then trained in pediatric dentistry at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Felli can speak over four languages and enjoys cooking, volunteering at her church, and spending time with her husband and two awesome sons.
Adam Bahr, DDS
Dr. Bahr, the youngest of 15 children, earned his dental degree at the University of Iowa College of Dentistry. His training continued in Alaska working with Alaska Natives and then at NYU Nagone Health, where he received his speciality certificate in pediatric dentistry. However, his love of working with kids developed long before his specialty dental training! Before attending UICD, he worked in an elementary school with children learning English as a second language. Dr. Bahr is fluent in Spanish and loves sports, the outdoors, trying new foods, and spending time with his family.
Timothy King, DDS – Orthodontist
Raised in a military family, Dr. King continued the tradition by entering the Army after graduating from dental school. He completed the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at Ft. Benning, GA, served as the Division Dental Surgeon of the U.S. Army 101st Airborne Division at Ft. Campbell, KY, and then was chosen for the orthodontic residency at Ft. Meade, MD. Dr. King loves how a straighter smile can do wonders for a patient’s confidence! If your child needs orthodontic treatment, they’ll be in good hands with Dr. King’s years of training and experience.
