On Being an Orthodontist
Helping patients is a natural extension of who I am, and I feel lucky to play this important role in the lives of such wonderful people. It’s rewarding to give someone the gift of improved health and a beautiful smile, and I do everything in my power to make every patient smile right here in my office.
As an orthodontist, I recognize that each person has different needs, both clinical and personal. Whether I am working with a child, teen, or adult, I focus on that person and who they are as an individual. By talking with them, and building a rapport, I’m best able to develop the essential connection that will ensure they enjoy their orthodontic experience and their new, incredible smile.
I believe the positive experiences our patients enjoy in the practice encourage them to take an active role in taking good care of their smiles for the rest of their lives.
My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
I’m passionate about continuing education (CE) and know it’s an essential part of my responsibility as an oral healthcare provider. By remaining current on developing technologies and changes in treatment processes, I am able to continue to deliver to my patients the best care experience, and the strongest results. I regularly attend local, regional, and national meetings and conferences, and participate in webinar events, as well as read the latest research findings.

I have a wonderful husband and two terrific children. They are my greatest joy and my deepest pride.
When not working or spending time with my family, I enjoy working out, long bike rides and needlepointing. I am an avid reader and some of my favorite books include "Memoirs of a Geisha," "Plainsong" and "The Book of Eleven." I love to participate in various volunteer projects. I’ve traveled to South Africa and New Orleans for mission trips as well as served as a longtime Sunday School teacher. I am involved in my church, the Freestore Foodbank and 1N5, a mental health advocacy organization. My deepest passion, however, is to build into other people so that they recognize their worth in this world. THIS is important to me. I think it is the way I best contribute to making this world a better one.
