Originally from the Midwest, Dr. Littles received her veterinary degree from Purdue University. She moved to New Mexico 7 years ago where she had been practicing as a mixed animal veterinarian. Knowing that oral health is important in both large and small animals, she pursued extra courses to learn how to give her patients that best oral health care possible. It was during these extra courses that she realized she wanted to specialize in small animal veterinary dentistry. She started her full-time residency with Dr. Bannon, Dr. Rossi and the rest of the staff at VDOSNM in July 2018.
