Most people either loved going to the dentist as a kid—or absolutely hated it. Where did you fall? How come? Some of my most exciting days as a child were at the dentist. I was fascinated by everything in my dentists' and orthodontists' offices. I loved getting my palatal expander tightened and leaving after my exams with pearly white teeth. That clean feeling, and the pride I took when my dentist would once again tell me I had no cavities, filled my heart. To this day, I have yet to have a cavity, and my goal is to inspire and educate people to have great oral health.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job? Patient satisfaction and comfort is all I strive for. Being able to help patients restore their oral health and smile by educating, correcting, and improving habits makes my job worth it all.

What famous person (alive or dead) is your dream dental patient? Why? Julia Roberts because she has a gorgeous smile.

__What’s something your patients might be surprised to learn about you? (For example: “I was a cheerleader for four years in high school!” or “I have 17 cats!” or “My hidden talent is: ____”) I love dogs! If I could have 10 Australian Shepherds I would.

How do you recharge after a long week? What’s your go-to activity for hitting the restart button? Discovering a new place while doing an outdoor activity like walking, running, or hiking.

What is the absolute coolest thing about the human mouth? Taste buds! They make every meal enjoyable!

In another life, if you weren’t working in dentistry, what would you be doing? I would be traveling the world and experiencing different cultures and food.

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