I took a Hippocratic Oath when I graduated dental school. And though I strive to follow all of the covenants to the best of my ability, the one covenant which always rang the loudest to me is, “I will remember that there is art to dentistry as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.”

I love putting a smile on peoples’ faces, and since it’s my job to make it a beautiful smile, it’s twice as sweet. I love gaining the trust of a patient and putting to rest their anxieties. It’s extremely rewarding to have a patient who “hates seeing the dentist” tell me they can’t wait until the next time we see each other!

I am active in multiple, ongoing continuing education offerings. I want to continue to provide my patients with the most up-to-date and highest standard of care, along with the best treatments available. They trust me with their smile; I want to live up to that trust.

I’m an active Dawson Course Alumni, Advanced Implant Study Club member, and take additional courses throughout the year. Areas of interest include IV conscious sedation, dental surgery, and implant placement.

Originally from Bryan, in northwest Ohio, I’ve lived in Rock Hill for more than 15 years. My partner Katherine and I have two daughters, Spencer and Kate. Our family is rounded out with a dog, two cats, and a fish.

When I’m not working with my patients, my priority is family time. We enjoy riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, and traveling to new destinations.

Once a month I volunteer with the Soup Kitchen Outreach, offering dental care to the homeless in our community. I believe it’s essential to share one’s skills and abilities with those who need them; this is one way I can do so.
