Three dentists, hailing from coast to coast, became Mountaineers nearly three years ago when they joined the Department of Orthodontics. They completed their 34-month program in May. The postgraduate program is designed to develop skilled practitioners who can easily transition into and manage a busy orthodontics practice.

Dr. Miranda Fabrega grew up outside of Seattle, Wash. and attended the University of Washington for her undergraduate years. She moved to Pittsburgh, Pa. in 2015 and earned her DMD at the University of Pittsburgh. Miranda enjoys hiking with her dog Benny, cooking, indoor gardening, and spending time with her husband Thomas and son Theo. She will be returning to her hometown in Seattle to join a pediatric dentistry private practice.

Dr. Su Min Han (Sharon) was born in South Korea and grew up in northern Virginia. She went to the University of Pennsylvania for her undergraduate studies and then attended Medical University of South Carolina for dental school. In her spare time, she likes to stay cozy indoors with her cat Denny, visit her family, or explore around different walking trails and restaurants in town. Dr. Han will be joining a private practice in Virginia

Dr. Justin TenBrook grew up in south New Jersey between Philly and the Shore. He attended Washington and Lee University for undergraduate school where he lettered in varsity soccer all four years. He received his DMD at Medical University of South Carolina in 2019. He likes spending his free time playing the guitar, going to the beach, and playing soccer. Dr. TenBrook will be going back to New Jersey to join his father’s practice.
