What made you decide to get into your line of work?
Dentistry gives me the wonderful opportunity to educate patients on how important caring for their mouth is to their overall health. I also have a nursing background, and I am able to bring my medical knowledge and skills and incorporate them into providing the highest level of care to my patients.
I am able to provide patients with both immediate and long-term benefits. We help patients to achieve and maintain the health of their teeth and gums over their lifetime. The combination of art and science in dentistry allows us to create beautiful smiles that function well. A beautiful smile gives people confidence and improves their self-esteem. It’s so rewarding to be able to make this possible for my patients.
My career enables me to develop long-term relationships while making significant contributions to a greater quality of life for our patients.
