When you take your child to Parkland Pediatric Dentistry, you are putting your child in my care. I understand that this is a big decision, as I am a mother myself. Subsequently, I treat every child who sits in my dental chair as I would want my own treated. I have found that this puts my patient and their parent/guardian at ease, making it possible for me to provide the best care for your child. I knew that I wanted to be a dentist before I earned my graduate degree from Nova Southeastern University. I even knew that dentistry was my calling long before I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science from UCF. However, it was not until I served as a Captain for the US Army from 2004-2008 in Fort Bragg, NC that I discovered my calling as a pediatric dentist. During that time, I served under a 20-year Army Colonel who was a pediatric dentist and I realized that my talents would be best utilized in the pediatric setting, where I could combine my love of children and dentistry into a fulfilling career. I returned to Florida for my residency from 2008-2010, that included extensive hospital training as well as clinical experience in dental trauma and general anesthesia. But that wasn’t the end of my studies. I take pediatric dentistry very seriously. Parents trust me with their children, so I make sure I stay up to date on the latest studies and trends, and you can see some of the more interesting articles on new board in the office. In an effort to do that, I continue with my education and obtained board certification with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry in 2010. I am also certified in Pediatric Advanced Life Support, as well as basic life support. I look forward to meeting you and your child, and I am excited about putting your children on the right path so they can achieve oral health.
