Dr. Julie M. Coe is a full-time faculty member of Department of General Practice, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry. She holds Master of Science and certificate in Operative Dentistry and Dental Public Health from the University of Iowa and DDS from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. 
Prior to joining the Master’s program, she also earned Master’s in Business Administration and Health Administration at the University of Iowa and worked for a number of healthcare organizations.  She broadened her career to the combination of practice of dentistry and healthcare management when she realized how the health delivery system affects patient care after years of directly working with patients. 

With all these background and experience, Dr. Coe is striving to serve others: patients, colleagues, and students. She also wants to advance dentistry by leading research studies and promoting evidence-based dental practice. Dr. Coe maintains private practice with a focus on conservative esthetic dentistry using composite and general dentistry at Private Dentistry@VCU.
