I was still in grade school when I first thought that I wanted to be an orthodontist because of the amazing changes that I experienced while in orthodontic treatment. Not only did my teeth straighten, but I experienced improved self-confidence. The field of orthodontics continues to improve, offering exciting new methods to change teeth alignment and allowing me to help others.
I completed dental school at University of Missouri-Kansas City in 1994 and attended the University of Iowa for my specialty education, completing my Master’s in Orthodontics in 1996. Since moving to West Michigan, I welcome my team and patients into my office, am involved with the community and organized dentistry. Although not a native to West Michigan, it is my home where my husband and I enjoy raising our two children while taking part in Michigan’s outdoor activities.
I am a member of the following organizations:
Being an active member of the above organizations, achieving Diplomate Board Certification and continuing the education of myself and my team helps serve our patients and their families. Welcome to my orthodontic practice!
