Both my father and my grandfather were dentists, so my whole life I’ve grown up around dentistry. I saw how much joy dentistry brought them, and as I got older and spent more time helping at my dad’s office, I saw how much joy a dentist could bring to their patients.

My initial experiences with dentistry revolved around my excessive overjet. The success of my orthodontic treatment restored my confidence. Having experienced such low self-esteem, I desired to empower others dealing with similar issues and improve their outlook on life.

I have always been interested in science, so I knew I wanted to go into the medical field to use science in order to help others. I appreciate the schedule flexibility that dentistry offers, because having a family has always been another important goal of mine. Plus, I love teeth and making people smile!
