I’m so incredibly fortunate to be able to say that I absolutely adore my job! I wake up every day excited to go into the office because dentistry is something I truly enjoy. I am passionate about being a lifelong learner, and dentistry requires always staying current, as techniques and technology are constantly changing. I am a member of several associations and local groups where I meet with other dentists several times a month to continuously keep my body of knowledge fresh. I strive to provide the best possible care to my patients in every way possible, and keeping up-to-date with new developments allows me to stay on the cutting edge.
I love a lot of things about my job, but I think that my favorite part is really all the people who have trusted me to help them obtain healthy smiles. My philosophy involves providing excellent clinical care, but also being able to do that in a way that is relatable. I love working with people and do everything I can to put them at ease. Being friendly and taking as much time as needed to answer questions to keep my patients informed goes a long way to building relationships. I love hearing about my patients lives, and seeing kids get taller every time I see them! For me, that is always the highlight of my day.
Outside of work I really enjoy hiking around the beautiful Pacific Northwest. My hobbies include cooking, baking, and I have recently learned how to knit. It is no surprise that I chose to go into dentistry; it has allowed me to blend my love for working with people and the ability to work with my hands every day. To me, dentistry has always been my way to connect with those in my community while doing the most I can to help them lead healthier, happier lives.
