I truly enjoy making the dental experience a relaxing and comfortable experience with every patient. Patient comfort while in the dental chair is my top priority. I enjoy building relationships with each and every patient.
I grew up in Centerville, Ohio. I attended the University of Cincinnati in undergrad, graduating with a degree in Biology. After college, I moved to Lexington, Kentucky to attend the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry. After graduation, I moved to the Northern Virginia/DC area to continue my education at the highly respected residency program serving our former Military Service members at the Martinsburg, WV Veterans Affairs hospital. During my residency I gained experience treating medically compromised patients, placing implants, and performing surgical extractions and root canals. After residency I purchased my own practice in Northern Virginia where I practiced for a few years. After a few years in Northern Virginia I realized I missed my home state of Ohio, I made the decision to move back home to be closer to my family. I am so happy to be back!
I am very dedicated to continuing education. I have completed a year-long program at the Implant MaxiCourse to advance my skills in implant dentistry. I am also certified in Invisalign. I am a member of the AGD and most recently gained my fellowship. I am very committed to expanding my knowledge throughout the years to continue to provide the most up-to-date and best care for my patients.
In my free time you can find me somewhere in the US running a marathon (It is on my bucket list to run a 1/2 marathon in all 50 states). I also enjoy spending time with my fur child Hampton.
