My interest in dentistry was sparked by the artistry and knowledge required to excel in the field, but what keeps me passionate day in and day out are my patients.
I have worked in the dental field since I was 16 years old. After completing high school and my undergraduate education, I graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2003 from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio.
During my nearly two decades of practice, I have been honored with several awards, including:
- Colorado Springs Style’s Top Dentists (2012)
- Talk of the Town Excellence in Customer Satisfaction (2014, 2013, 2012, 2011)
- Continental Who’s Who Top Dentist (2011)
- Consumers’ Research Council of America Top Dentists (2011, 2010, 2009)
- Guide to America’s Top Dentists (2011, 2010, 2007, 2006)
- Cambridge Who’s Who Executives and Professionals (2007)
- Top Dentist in D Magazine (Dallas, TX 2007)
I am currently a member of the American Academy of Facial Esthetics, American Dental Association, Colorado Dental Association, Colorado Springs Dental Society, American Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Women Dentists, and National Association of Professional Women.
In addition, I am a member of the Spear Study Club and am laser certified. This enables me to perform hard- and soft-tissue laser procedures, which result in little to no discomfort and faster recovery times for my patients.
I love working with children and have two teens of my own. I have been happily married for more than 20 years.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, finding adventure in the outdoors, traveling and learning about other cultures, and volunteering as a Sunday School teacher and for other places in need. I truly enjoy community service and helping to better the community.
I have given back to my community since I was in high school (more than 20 years ago now) and I plan to continue my passion of volunteering. If anyone has any ideas or needs for volunteer efforts, please contact our office.
