I'm SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
While I was in dental school, I was involved in outreach organizations providing free dental treatment for underprivileged youth – both in my local community, as well as throughout California’s Central Valley and in other countries such as Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Mexico. I have also been a part of a group of students who started a club to discuss professionalism and ethics in dentistry – a club that eventually found its way into dental schools nationwide.
During my residency at Montefiore, I was able to further refine my knowledge of cosmetic dentistry, full mouth rehabilitation, and implant dentistry. I’ve also retained a desire for continuing education, always working to ensure that my practice is on the cutting edge of modern and cosmetic dentistry.
When I'm not helping you have a healthy smile,
I LOVE TO.....
I'm new here!
I’m originally from the St. Louis, MO area. I attended the University of Missouri – Columbia for my undergraduate degree (MIZ!) and the University of Missouri – Kansas City for dental school (Go Chiefs!). After dental school, I relocated to Austin to begin my career and chase the Texas sunshine. I am dedicated to providing a comfortable, laid-back experience for all of my patients. I believe it is of utmost importance to explain each procedure to my patients in detail and answer any questions they may have in order to make them feel at ease and informed about their oral health. I always dreamt of becoming a dentist at the early age of 10 years old and am thrilled to be living out this dream each day. I hope that my positive, bubbly personality will instill confidence that my patients’ oral health is in good hands.
When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my dog, Sawyer, cat, Theodore, and friends and family. I have a 3-year-old nephew, Elijah, and an 18-month-old niece, Emersyn whom I adore. I really enjoy yoga, working out, hiking, and anything that involves being on the water. One of my favorite things to do is try all the amazing restaurants Austin has to offer, travel, and attend concerts.
