Meet Dr. Mei Li Hester

Dr. Mei Li Hester was adopted from China when she was just 5 months old and has been lucky enough to call Texas her home and now Rochester, Minnesota! Her educational journey has been a wonderful adventure: she graduated from Baylor University with a B.S. in Biology in 2016, earned an M.S. in Anatomy from UT Health San Antonio Graduate School in 2019, and most recently, completed her dental degree at UT Health San Antonio School of Dentistry in 2024.

She is a newlywed! Her husband is currently completing his dermatology residency at the Mayo Clinic. In her free time, she’s an avid reader who loves getting lost in fiction. Staying active is important to her, and she’s working towards the goal of completing a 10K. Recently, she has also discovered a passion for traveling and hiking, and has been loving every minute of it!
