Amber Mott

Pittsgrove, NJ

Amber Mott graduated from Rowan University Magna Cum Laude, majoring in Biological Sciences. She decided to pursue dentistry after her orthodontist gave her self-confidence through braces and the admiration to transform the smiles of others. Amber will attend Temple University Maurice H. Kornberg School of Dentistry to work on her DMD in August 2024.

She has trained in Tang Soo Do and Aiki Jujutsu for ten years, earning her third-degree black belt and continuously practicing both arts. Her training has taught her perseverance and a passion to lead others. Throughout Amber’s undergraduate experience, she participated in volunteering, chemotherapy drug research, and shadowing to prepare for dental school applications. She is passionate about serving the community and has volunteered for programs such as Colgate Bright Smiles Bright Futures and Special Smiles - Special Olympics of New Jersey. Both programs have further fueled her desire to help underserved communities as a dentist.

 Amber is a twin who has done everything with her sister, Jasmine. They have the same career aspirations to become dentists and will attend Temple University together. Amber hopes to use her compassion to provide excellent and empathetic care to her future patients.
