My profession means the world to me. It motivates me and drives me to continue to reach higher and farther. I love getting up and going to work every morning because of all the great people I know I will come in contact with. The diversity of my patient base reminds me why this country is so great. There is so much to learn from people in terms of culture and experiences, and I wouldn't trade what I do for anything. Getting to know my patients is greatly fulfilling to me, and the most important reward I receive is seeing their joyful smiles at the end of their orthodontic journey.
I am passionate about helping people understand the benefits to orthodontic treatment besides just achieving a beautiful smile. While that is important, having straight teeth is also essential to proper function, health, and confidence.
Continuing education is especially important because it allows me to stay aware of the latest treatment techniques and determine whether or not it will have an application in my practice. I focus on providing the most efficient, effective treatments, such as the Damon System, and participate in focused training regarding that technology. My passion for staying up to date means my patients can expect to receive the highest quality and most advanced care in my office.
I am very fortunate to have come from a close-knit family, with everyone living within 30 minutes of one another. We are all avid sports fans and love spending time together. When I'm not at work, I'm usually watching movies or sports, exercising or reading. I also love to travel. My favorite non-work related activity is exploring new places; it is thrilling to try different foods and activities, and Im always up for an adventure.
I am dedicated to spreading the value of education by talking with and mentoring young people. I am involved in community health outreach programs as well as job fairs and youth education. I love having the opportunity to pass on what I have learned to someone else.

Before your treatment begins, our orthodontic assistants will educate you on the best ways to control plaque when you have braces and how to properly brush and floss around your appliances. They will then prepare your teeth for your braces through a detailed cleaning and polish. Our orthodontic assistants will also make sure your teeth are clean and healthy when you get your braces off, so you can show off your new smile with confidence. Each member of our orthodontic team provides gentle, thorough care and treats each patient with kindness and respect for their needs. With years of education, continuing education, and training with the newest and best orthodontic technology, your smile is in great hands with our assistants. They love to make you smile!
