What do you love most about being a pediatric dentist?
Every day is an adventure. I never know what I’m going to get but I know that it’s going to be fun!
What do you love most about being a part of Pediatric Dental Associates?
PDA has been my home since I was a resident. I respect and admire all the partners for their knowledge and abilities with children. Everyone brings something different to the practice so I know that I have wealth of resources at my fingertips.
How do you approach pediatric dentistry?
Children are much smarter than most adults give them credit for. I try to be honest with kids but in a way that’s appropriate to help them cope with the task. Above all, try and make it fun. Everything is made better with stickers and prizes.
If you weren’t a pediatric dentist you’d be?
I’ve wanted to be a dentist since I was 10 years old so I can’t imagine doing anything else.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Spending time with my beautiful family, cooking, Lithe Method
