Dr. Gloria Iwuala


Gloria Mosley Iwuala is a native Houstonian who has always found great satisfaction in the medical field. After dropping out of high school in the tenth grade, she found herself working at St. Joseph's Hospital in the field of Respiratory Therapy. She began as an equipment technician for one year and was then promoted to a technician where she had her first opportunity to treat patients. Once she experienced the satisfaction of helping people, she knew that she wanted to continue her career in medicine; but she also realized that she had to complete school.

Her love for treating patients drove her to major in biology and minor in chemistry. One of the Biology instructors became aware of her potential and directed her towards Dentistry. This was a life changer!

Dr. Iwuala graduated summa cum laude and valedictorian in 1978 and was accepted to UT Dental Houston. Since graduating in 1982, she has worked for Southern Dental Associates. Treating patients and helping those in pain or need has brought much satisfaction to her life.
