I have a passion for treating children and believe that a friendly and positive environment will create the foundation for lifelong good oral hygiene. My goal is to establish long lasting relationships with not only my patients, but their parents!
I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Biomedical from the University of Tennessee. As if that wasn’t challenging enough, I then ventured on to West Virginia University School of Dentistry where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree. I then traveled to Pittsburgh where I completed my Pediatric Dental Residency as Chief Resident at the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.
I am a board-certified Pediatric Dentist, an active member and fellow of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the College of Diplomats of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. I am extremely experienced with both pharmacological and non-pharmacological behavior guidance, management of developing occlusion and treatment planning for patients with special needs.
I live in Woodbridge with my husband Ryan, my daughter Lydia and our family dog Heath! When I am not with my patients, I enjoy baking, cheering on my favorite sports teams, traveling and spending time with my family and friends.
