I grew up in Flower Mound and graduated from Lewisville High School. After high school, I attended the University of North Texas and gained early acceptance to Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. In 2004, upon completion of my first year of dental school, I received a Bachelor of Arts in biology with a minor in chemistry and Spanish from UNT. While at Baylor, I was a member of the Odontological Honor Society and the Dean’s List. I was also selected to join Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a national dental honor fraternity. I graduated in the top 15% of my class from Baylor in 2007. Since graduating, I have practiced dentistry in both a clinic setting and private practice, thus allowing me to obtain a range of clinical knowledge. My favorite part of dentistry is the relationships I am able to develop with patients.
My philosophy is to diagnose and treat patients, in the same way, I would my own family, in the most relaxed and comfortable environment possible. My approach to dentistry is unique in that I want to help provide a healthy smile with the least amount of invasive restoration. I strive to deliver meaningful and comprehensive care for your entire family and to instill this same mentality in my office team. When the need is real, and treatment is required, you can trust that every effort and resource will be exhausted in restoring your smile.
