Dr. Michelle Haghpanah

Dr. Michelle is a board-certified pediatric dentist and lives in Palo Alto with her husband, a Bay Area native, and three children. They also have a very energetic dachshund. You can often find them at the Magical Bridge or Mitchell Park Library. If you see them, say hello!

Dr. Michelle double majored in biology and computer science at Fairfield University and obtained her Master of Public Health at Yale University.

Given her love for children and desire to promote prevention, Dr. Michelle completed her pediatric dental residency at The Mount Sinai Medical Center where she was chief resident. Dr. Michelle was an Associate Professor at the University of the Pacific and has privileges at both Lucile Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford and Kaiser Santa Clara.

Dr. Michelle’s favorite color is blue and her favorite cartoon character is Peppa Pig. In her free time, Dr. Michelle enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, and community service.
