My father and grandfather were both dentists and my mother a teacher: As a child I knew I wanted to be a dentist and was drawn to the pediatric specialty from a desire to help children.
As a pediatric dentist, I strive to create positive dental experiences for young patients. I want each to know they are safe, heard, and treasured for who they are. This helps build trust and allows me to help guide them as they grow, ensuring they learn how to keep their smile healthy and bright.
It is rewarding to care for the underserved, to ease pain, and to give children reasons to smile – and to love their smiles, too!
