Pediatric Dentist


I am a mom first, and I understand the fears and anxieties of a parent. It is my responsibility to make sure every parent and child who walks in has an enjoyable experience in a safe and secure atmosphere.


My favorite quote is, "The true character of society is revealed in how it treats its children," by Nelson Mandela. My favorite movies are Star Wars, Avatar, Iron Man, and Shrek. For vacation, my favorite destination is Key West, Florida.
