I began my career in dentistry 16 years ago as a chairside dental assistant/hygiene assistant. Quickly realizing the passion I had for this type of work and for my patients. I decided to further my career and obtained an Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene from Lakeland Community College in 2008. I truly enjoy the personal relationships I form with my patients and the ability to make them calm and comfortable during their appointments. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters, and dog. We enjoy going to the park, gardening, bird watching, and cooking as a family.
