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

I loved the dentist as a kid! I had a lot of cavities growing up, so I spent a lot of time in the dental chair and always enjoyed it because of how comfortable my childhood dentist made me feel. It taught me how to take better care of my teeth as a teenager and an adult and is what inspired me to pursue a career in dentistry.

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

Restoring my patients' confidence in their smiles — and when patients say "wow, that wasn't so bad!" after finishing an appointment or treatment they walked into the room feeling anxious about.

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

I have 36 first cousins!

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

A yummy meal and some hot yoga or indoor cycling will do the trick.

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

I don't think this job exists, but I'd combine my passion for traveling with my love for dogs and be a travel dog walker!

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