Building relationships with my patients and having the privilege of affecting their health and lives is an honor and a role I take very seriously. One of the most rewarding experiences for me is seeing a previously timid or nervous child overcome their anxieties and enjoy coming to the dentist. Further, having children of my own has only strengthened my understanding of the needs of both patients and parents. Every child and every family is unique and no two children can be treated exactly the same. I love getting to know families on a personal level, connecting with them and learning how to best educate them.
My mission in not only my career, but also my life, has always been to give back to the community, while holding tight to my values and code of ethics. Every decision I make for a child is made with that in mind. I encourage parents and patients to ask questions and fully understand my recommendations so they can feel confident in the quality of care they are receiving.
My team and I are dedicated to the health and well-being of your child and will work tirelessly to ensure that you and your family are treated with respect in a comfortable and honest environment.
At Children’s Dentistry of Fairfax, our goal is to ensure a relaxed experience for both you and your child. Our kid-focused office is wise enough to walk parents through challenging dental situations, while eager to get down on your child’s level to make a new friend.
When you’re in our office, we promise to be more than dental providers. We’ll make you and your child feel at home while providing the most current and latest treatments. Come join our family at Children’s Dentistry of Fairfax to see why we’re kid experts!
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Boston University’s Goldman School of Dental Medicine. I then went on to complete my certificate in pediatric dentistry and Master of Science in dentistry at Virginia Commonwealth University, where I served as chief resident during my second year.
I also have a background in public health from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This experience further drives my desire to provide quality dental care with a strong emphasis on prevention.
The most important part of my life is and always has been my family. Outside of the office, I enjoy visiting my parents and my (many!) siblings, nieces and nephews. I also enjoy spending time hiking, biking, and traveling with my children and husband. Though I am definitely still learning, I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen and trying out new cuisines.
