She went on to earn her Bachelors of Science from Wake Forest University and her dental degree from Temple University, both with highest honors. She then returned to Temple University to specialize in Orthodontics and complete research to earn a Master’s degree in Oral Biology. In dental school, she was inducted into the dental honor society, Omicron Kappa Upsilon, and in both dental school and her orthodontic residency program she received multiple research and clinical awards and honors.

Dr. Wulc loves to get involved in the community. You may even recognize her from her role at the Narberth Fourth of July where she volunteers at the Baby Parade, the toy table, and the Temple Dental School Moon bounce.
