"My biggest reasons for starting my own practice were my staff and my patients. Starting my own practice would not have been so successful without Gods guidance. I found an awful looking building that “luckily” (God) the owners were willing to completely rehab it for a dental practice. Everything was refinished. I picked every tiny aspect of it and designed it with patient and staff ease and comfort in mind. I’m really proud of it now and the journey has been great."
She enjoys making her patients and staff feel like they are part of our family. Dentistry is stressful for everyone involved so we try to make it less stressful with different types of music and a family type atmosphere.
" I personally love all varieties of music. I have four sons that are 4 months, 6,7 and 8. I was made to be a boy mom but I’d love to have a girl in the future. I enjoy exercise, owning my own business, and doing continuing education. I am addicted to challenges, learning, and goals."
