‘‘I believe one of the most important parts of my job is listening to my patients’ concerns and making sure they are truly comfortable during treatment."

“One of the things I am most proud of is how quickly our patients feel like this is there ‘dental home.’ My approach to treatment is to make my patients feel like guests while introducing them to the exciting and innovative aspects of 21st-century dentistry. I practice preventive dentistry, where the goal is preventing gum disease and cavities before they happen, whenever possible. Your oral health is cared for as well as coordinating with your overall body health.”

She became a member of the American Dental Educators Association (ADEA) in 2006 and has been a presenter at the annual meetings since.
