I want to help you with your health journey, wherever you happen to be right now. Our office will work together to provide you personalized dental care in a safe and comfortable environment.” — Dr. Momany
Dr. Momany grew up in Spokane with her mother, father, and two younger sisters. While many of her family members have careers in the fields of medicine and nursing, she chose to pursue dentistry as a means to help people feel good about themselves, beginning with a beautiful smile. For her, dentistry is a perfect blend of her two lifelong passions: art and science.
Dr. Momany attended Whitman College in Walla Walla, where she raced for the nationally ranked Whitman College Cycling Team, and graduated with honors in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology. During Dr. Momany’s four years at the University of Washington Dental School in Seattle, she served as her class treasurer and financial chair. She also spent time tutoring other students as a teacher’s assistant for Gross Anatomy and Operative Dentistry, and mentored underclassmen as a peer advisor. At the culmination of her schooling, she was awarded her Doctorate of Dental Surgery and inducted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a dental honor society for individuals who graduate among the top of their class and display integrity of character.
Throughout her schooling and years of private practice, Dr. Momany has helped those in need by providing free dental care at a multitude of low-income dental clinics in Seattle (including the Union Gospel Mission, 45th St. Clinic for Homeless Youth, and Seattle/King County Clinic), and in impoverished areas of Guatemala and Jamaica.
Outside of work, Dr. Momany enjoys staying active through hiking, running, and rock climbing. She enjoys creating tasty concoctions in her kitchen, including hand-made chocolate truffles. (Don’t worry; she always brushes her teeth afterward!) She continues to express her creativity through painting and a variety of other media.
