I knew from an early age that I would pursue a career in healthcare. Growing up, my father was my absolute hero. As an ENT physician in Yakima, he treated and cared for family, friends, and all the members of his community. I sought a career where I could provide that same quality of care. As a dentist, I have the opportunity to improve our patients’ lives, from facilitating excellent oral health and alleviating tooth pain to creating for them a beautiful, lasting smile.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Arts degrees in Psychology and Pre-Professional Studies – University of Notre Dame
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – University of Washington
- Kois Center of Advanced Dentistry Graduate
I participate in as many continuing education courses and study clubs as possible. My goal is to continue to improve in all aspects as a dentist. Without a doubt, my passion is creating a beautiful, life-changing smile for each patient I meet. I am a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. It has helped push me into a greater understanding and implementation of the best esthetics into long lasting restorations. I have received advanced training in Botox and facial fillers, Invisalign and anterior composites, all with the goal of giving my patients every option in achieving the smile they deserve.
Outside the office
I am originally from Yakima, and now live in the Laurelhurst neighborhood of Seattle with my husband, Jeff, our three kids, Charlotte August and Magnolia, and our dog, Finn. We absolutely love living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and can often can often be found outside enjoying what this city has to offer.
