I have a lot of friends who find going to the dentist, let say, not so enjoyable. My assumption is that their dentist isn’t a beauty queen who is competing in the Miss USA 2012 pageant. However, there are a lucky few in Virginia who are probably trying to find reasons to see their dentist. That’s because their dentist is Catherine Muldoon, Miss Virginia 2012. That’s right a beauty queen AND a dentist!


Muldoon had an exciting 2011. She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, accepted a job with Konikoff Dentistry in Virginia and then won the title of Miss Virginia USA 2012 on November 5th. In June of 2012 she will represent Virginia in the Miss USA 2012 pageant. How does she plan on juggling all the added responsibilities?

“I’m not entirely sure how much time I’ll have to commit to being a part of the Miss USA pageant, but I’m determined to make this work while still maintaining my career,” said Muldoon. “I feel like if you have one or two priorities, you can manage your time wisely.”

I’m sure we’ll all be rooting for Miss Muldoon to win Miss USA. I can’t think of a better representative for the U.S. than someone who is pretty AND a dentist… come to think of it, I can’t think about a better representative for the universe.

If you are not lucky enough to have a beauty pageant winner as your dentist, not to worry. There are tons of great dentists just a click away on DentistUSA!
