Quote

I will create positive experiences for your child so that as they grow, they feel comfortable and confident going to the dentist to maintain care. I love working with kids and look forward to getting to know your family!

Favorites

Besides getting to know your family, my favorite thing is spending time with my husband (an orthodontist) and two children. I also love hockey (VGK), good food, laughing with friends, learning new things, and vacations with sunshine and nature.
