Meet the Dentists of Trinity Family Dental

At Trinity Family Dental we feel that a combined multi-specialty approach offers the highest quality and affordability in dental care.

Dr. Timothy Shen — General Dentist

Dr. Shen is passionate about helping others. He received his undergraduate degree at the University of Washington before moving on to Temple Kornberg School of Dentistry to earn his Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree.

He served a year in the United States Navy and completed his Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) there. Dr. Shen still serves as a reserve officer in the Navy Reserve.

Participating in multiple dental mission trips throughout Central America has deepened Dr. Shen’s compassion and fueled his desire to help others achieve optimal dental health.

  • American Dental Association
  • California Dental Association
  • San Diego County Dental Society
  • International Congress of Implantology

Driven to always broaden his understanding, Dr. Shen aims for an average of 30-40 hours of continuing education every year.

When he isn’t working hard to build beautiful smiles, Dr. Shen enjoys traveling, reading, skiing, cooking, playing sports, attending the Lighthouse Bible Church, and spending time with his lovely wife and kids.

Dr. Leah Ocampo — Endodontist

Dr. Ocampo grew up in Southern California. After attending UCLA for undergraduate studies in physiology, she went to the University of Southern California’s Ostrow School of Dentistry where she received a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. Dr. Ocampo also completed a year of AEGD training while stationed in San Diego with the Navy as a Dental Officer. She was later transferred to the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. After touring a year alongside the Marine Expeditionary Unit, Dr. Ocampo took part in multiple humanitarian missions to Africa and the Middle East.

Later, Dr. Ocampo decided to extend her studies to the branch of endodontics, and completed specialty training by returning to the Ostrow School of Dentistry. She is now board-eligible and a valuable member of the Trinity Family Dental team.
