Most people either loved going to the dentist as a kid—or absolutely hated it. Where did you fall? How come?

I loved going to the dentist. My favorite feeling as a kid was (and still is) clean teeth. The video games in the waiting room definitely helped, too!

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

When a member leaves feeling great about themselves, regardless of whether they came in for a cleaning or ten cavities. In addition to being your provider, I am here to be your cheerleader for your oral health care!

What’s something your patients might be surprised to learn about you?

I own and ride a motorcycle

How do you recharge after a long week? What’s your go-to activity for hitting the restart button?

Hitting the gym and cleaning my apartment. When my space is clean, my mind is clear.

__What is the absolute coolest thing about the human mouth? __

The mouth is one of the fastest healing parts of the body - saliva has proteins that promote healing!

In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing?

I would be an obstetrician.

When I’m in the patient chair, I’m probably grooving to {blank} in my headphones.
