I feel like I’m living a dream, to make a living doing something that I absolutely love. It is very rewarding to see the immensely positive effect that orthodontic treatment has on an individual.
We see many of our patients during an extremely transformative period in their lives, and we have the unique opportunity to completely alter their appearance and the way they feel about themselves in a very definite way. I definitely feel like I have the absolute best job in the world, and I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I love getting to know my patients and their families. We become a part of their life during their treatment, and often that relationship continues even after their orthodontic treatment is completed. It’s awesome to see them and their smiles out and about in town everywhere I go.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor’s in agriculture, magna cum laude – The Ohio State University
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine, first in class – Case Western Reserve University, School of Dental Medicine
- Orthodontic certificate, master’s in dentistry – Saint Louis University Center for Advanced Dental Education
My goal is to provide the absolute highest level of service to every patient, every visit. To fulfil that goal, I regularly participate in continuing education on a variety of topics, including Invisalign® and new techniques, through my membership in the American Association of Orthodontists.
Outside the Office
My husband Lucas and I have three sons: Torren, KJ, and Kaelan. I spend pretty much every minute I’m not at the office with my family. We love to be at their sporting events, do fun things outdoors, and take short trips in Texas and to the surrounding states.
