She graduated four years later with a Doctorate in Dental medicine. Immediately after, Dr. Morin was offered a position in Naples as a general dentist where she provided dental care for a diverse population of all ages for 2 years. She fell in love with the city of Naples and grew a strong passion for treating children. She received the Top Gun Award honoring outstanding dedication and service in providing dental care in private practice.

She spent two years of profound education on child development and received extensive training as a pediatric dental resident at Joe DiMaggio Children 's Hospital and Broward Hospital. She served as the Chief Resident and earned a Master in Dental Science. As part of the craniofacial team, she provided dental care for a wide range of young and special needs children. Her research study during residency was published in the official national journal of Pediatric Dentistry (September 2016,vol 38 N5 p.398-405). After graduating from residency, she pursued her interest in research and helped as a journal editor for both 'Advances in Pediatric Research' and 'Pediatric Disease' journals.
