I enjoy treating every child as if he or she were my own. Being able to see children have a positive experience in my office gives me immense happiness and satisfaction. I know firsthand what it’s like to have a negative dental experience. As a result, I am motivated and driven to ensure that every child has a positive, fun dental experience and that he or she always feels safe and respected.
I love engaging with my pediatric patients and getting to know them. I strive to create an individual, unique connection with each child so they trust me and know that I will deliver the best possible care in the most compassionate way.
Education and Continuing Studies
- University of the Pacific – Bachelor of Science in biological sciences
- New York University College of Dentistry – Doctorate of Dental Surgery
- Brookdale Hospital Medical Center – advanced education in pediatric dentistry
I am always interested in updating and reinforcing my education on a constant basis so I can deliver the best outcomes for patient care. I want parents to feel assured that their child is in the best of hands and being treated with the most up-to-date, evidence-based practices.
To that end, I am involved with several study groups and professional organizations, including the:
- American Dental Association
- Texas Dental Association
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- Texas Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- Capital Area Dental Society
Outside the Office
When I’m not working, you’ll find me hiking in one of Austin’s beautiful trails or kayaking at Lady Bird Lake or Lake Travis. I also thoroughly enjoy checking out the Austin food scene, especially the food trucks!
Outside of work, I volunteer as a health board coordinator for a local community religious center, where I help to create and coordinate different health programs for the community, such as vaccine clinics, wellness days, and blood drives. I’m passionate about eating healthy and staying healthy through fitness. I strive to maintain an active lifestyle and enjoy motivating others to have one too!
