I take great pride in the rewarding specialty I have selected and in the relationships I have built with many wonderful families over the years. It melts my heart to receive outstanding feedback from parents repeatedly and to see how excited their children are for their dental visits. I look forward to getting to know your family! It is my goal to provide the most positive, comforting, and enjoyable environment for your children, as I believe a great start at an early age will guide them towards a lifetime of excellent oral health and pleasant dental experiences.

I wish I could give more stars. My son was so extremely comfortable for it being his first time ever having dental treatment done. The dentist is so great with the children. Makes them laugh. Makes them so comfortable. She’s gentle and caring.Evangelina M.
