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

I loved it although I always had cavities, I felt like the dental office was always a cooler more fun place then the doctor's office.

What (or who) inspired you to get into dentistry? How so?

My dental hygienist was so great that she inspired me to get into the field. She was down to earth, trustworthy, and easy be around.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

Making people happy (giving them back their self confidence) and taking them out of pain.

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

Going to the gym and shopping.

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