There is no greater privilege than to care for the dental health of the children in my community. Ever since I had the opportunity to volunteer with “Give Kids a Smile” in dental school to educate children about oral health, I knew pediatric dentistry would be the meaningful work I would pursue for the rest of my career. Training through years of pediatric dental residency to become equipped to care for children of all ages and those requiring the most intricate of procedures has enabled me to tailor my practice to each individual child. There is nothing more rewarding than being able to build trust with my patients and their families through learning what their needs are and to reach their dental health goals together.
What makes wonderful pediatric dental care possible is a dedicated team that shows up every day to serve the children of our community. Together we approach every patient with the attention and care to make the child feel at ease and make every step as fun as possible. I am grateful to join incredible team members and carry out the work of oral care that we are so passionate about!

BEYOND THE PRACTICE
I was born in Marietta, Georgia, and grew up in Orlando. I am grateful that after years of training I am able to return to Central Florida and serve the community that I was raised in. With my family living locally we are able to spend quality time together. We enjoy organizing activities for our local church and volunteering to arrange fun events for the children to participate in. We also enjoy family vacations and have explored almost every continent! Learning about other cultures throughout our travels is enriching to our lives and we are always excited to bring those experiences home.
