I love my patients and treat them like family. You can always expect high-quality dental hygiene. Making sure you are comfortable and educated in all your oral health needs is my priority. I promise to deliver thorough treatment with a gentle touch and a caring heart.


I love the smell of books at the Library and roasting coffee beans. My favorite things in nature are the glitter of newly fallen snow in the sunlight, the colors of Fall foliage in the Smoky Mountains, and lightning storms.

I have practiced in dentistry since 2008. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting tea rooms, aquariums, and botanical gardens. I love attending live theater and going on food adventures with my husband while traveling throughout the US on our Harley.
