One of the most rewarding aspects of being a pediatric dentist is helping children overcome their fears or worries, and to see the pride and sense of accomplishment on their faces at the end of a visit.
I truly believe that children represent the best aspects of our world. Their sweet smiles motivate me to keep working hard and staying up to date on the latest advancements in pediatric dentistry.
I am a proud Phoenician. I have earned my Bachelor of Science degrees in Biology and Chemistry from Northern Arizona University and continued my education at Arizona State University, were I received my Master’s in Secondary Science Education. In 2015, I completed my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health while also obtaining my Master’s of Public Health as a dual-degree student.
I have completed my pediatric dental residency from NYU Lutheran Medical Center - training site in Tucson, AZ in 2017. I am a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist and have received extensive training in all disciplines of pediatric dentistry including patients with special healthcare needs, conscious sedation, and hospital dentistry. My role as a pediatric dentist involves cultivating a dental home for all children.
I consider myself a big kid at heart. Outside the office my husband and I have a son and hoping to add to our little family. We love spending time with our family, friends, traveling, snowboarding, outdoor activities, but especially love the ocean.
