I was drawn to pediatric dentistry from a desire to help people lead healthier, happier lives. I love working with kids and making a difference in the life of each child by having great dental experiences. It is rewarding seeing children who arrive feeling anxious leave smiling and saying they can't wait to come back. The philosophy at Kids Dental Smiles is to treat every child as if they were our own.
Education, Continuing Education and Professional Affiliations
I received my undergraduate degree from Baylor University in Waco, TX. After attending Dental School at Nova Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, I continued my education at the University of Illinois in Chicago completing a General Practice Residency. It was then that I realized how much I enjoyed working with children and decided to pursue my specialty training in Pediatric Dentistry at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA. After my training, I returned to Texas and started Kids Dental Smiles in 2006. I have enjoyed every minute since.
I am board certified by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the:
- American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- Southwestern Society of Pediatric Dentistry
- Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- American Dental Association
- Texas Dental Association
Beyond the Practice
I was raised in Aurora, Missouri, and have resided in Round Rock for more than 15 years. I have three wonderful children who teach me something new everyday. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies and live music, playing tennis and basketball, and spending time with family. I wake up every morning feeling truly privileged to do what I do and honored to know that you trust our office to take care of your child's dental needs.
