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

My parents because they always made me take care of my teeth — they'd have a timer on when I'd brush!

What’s the most rewarding part of your job?

When a patient tells me, "I feel and noticed a difference in my oral health after visiting you and the dental studio last time."

What famous person (alive or dead) is your dream dental patient? Why?

Dustin from STRANGER THINGS (Gaten Matarazzo) because he has Cleidocranial Dysplasia and it'd be so cool to take his radiographs!

What’s your dream toothpaste flavor?

Nutella Belgian waffle with chocolate ice cream and strawberry mango bits...YUM!

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

Going out for dessert, then watching Netflix at home!

What is the absolute coolest thing about the human mouth?

That it's connected to the whole body! The bacteria in the mouth can lead to serious health complications, like heart disease.
