“I have always had a keen interest in medicine and found it intriguing. This was a guiding factor when I decided to pursue a different direction from my career as a landscape architect and become a dentist.

“While working as a landscape architect, I succeeded at designing beautiful outdoor living spaces for my clients. A similar philosophy of striving to design something both esthetic, as well as functional, applies to the field of dentistry. A smile deserves my conscientious attention to detail, adherence to artistic principles and an overall balance and symmetry. This helps to create a mouth that looks beautiful and also functions well. I intend to utilize my esthetic skills in the practice of dentistry and continue to build on them to benefit my patients.

“My father and I share a similar patient philosophy… treat patients like family and provide them with outstanding dental care and personalized attention. We also have a keen sense of empathy and understanding for our patients’ experiences, allowing us to work in harmony to create good oral health and overall wellness.

“It was an honor to have worked with my father. He saw so many area families grow up and create families of their own. I love that I am helping to continue this legacy.”
