I have been practicing dentistry since 1992, and have loved every minute of it. What makes me smile walking in the office every morning, besides my coffee, is the exciting adventures of my day. From meeting new patients to reconnecting with the old ones, every encounter brings me joy. I have been fortunate in that I had chosen my career early in life because of a positive impression I had of our family dentist back then. He was the most caring yet inspiring individual I had a pleasure to acquaint with at a young impressionable age. My visits to his office as a little girl were all about fun, excitement and new discoveries. Not much has changed!
I attended the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in Ann Arbor, earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery with honors in 1992. I approached my training with such excitement and fervor that I graduated with my dental degree two years ahead of time, making me the youngest in my class. Continuing my education is another way for me to stay in the forefront of new advancements and ensure my patients are getting the best treatment possible. I have sought out new education on a variety of topics and technologies including TMJ disorders, full mouth reconstruction, implants, Invisalign and 3D radiography to name a few. I am also a member of:
- American Dental Association
- Georgia Dental Association
- International Dental Implant Association
- American Academy of Facial Esthetics
Just like any other profession, practicing dentistry and delivering an outstanding care is not possible without an exceptional team. They say you are as good as the people you approximate yourself with. We have been very fortunate to have developed a team that believes in our vision, trust in our ability, and strives to deliver the best possible care to all of our patients. While in our office you would feel that you are in the company of individuals who care about you and your well-being. We treat you like family!
I am also involved with the Team Smile and the Atlanta Falcons where we partner and volunteer to provide dental services to children who do not have access to proper dental care. Being able to give back to our community is very rewarding for all involved in the process. As my father always says, “You receive from the same hand you give”. Giving is Living!
Outside the Office
Although I am not a native, I have lived in Atlanta longer than I have lived anywhere else and consider it my hometown. It is where all of my family lives, where I started my career, where I met and married my husband, and where I had my two sons… the list goes on! I am an avid reader, an early habit that was engraved in my daily routine by my mother. Working out, practicing yoga, and gardening are my escape from the daily grind. I also enjoy traveling and skiing with my family.
