I love what I do here—transforming smiles into something my patient is proud to see in the mirror. I go above and beyond for my patients in all aspects, from making them comfortable in the chair to getting to know them individually. It is important that patients know we are here to treat them, not just a tooth, because behind every tooth is a person.
I began my career in dentistry as an assistant while I was still in high school. The experiences I had at that office shaped my view of what I wanted to do with my professional life, and I applied to dental school while in college. I was accepted into New York University’s College of Dentistry and earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
After dental school, I did my General Practice Residency at Queens General Hospital which was part of Long Island Jewish Hospital at that time. For the five years before I left New York for North Carolina, I taught dental residents at Peninsula Hospital in Far Rockaway, NY.
As a member of the Academy of General Dentistry, I am committed to keeping current with techniques, materials, and treatments in order to offer the very best to my patients. I attend lectures and hands-on training on all aspects of dentistry, from pediatrics and oral surgery to pharmacology and nutrition.
I am engaged to a great guy, Bernard, who has owned his own karate studio in Garner, NC since 2007. I have two children, Frank and Sam, the latter of whom was just accepted into NC State. We also have a cat, a ball python, two bearded dragons, and two dogs. It’s a full house, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! When I’m not at work, you can find me at the gym, karate studio (I am currently a green belt), at home with the kids, in the garden, or on nice days, riding a motorcycle with Bernard.
