What made you want to become a Dentist?
For me, dentistry is the perfect blend of patient care, medicine, and art. I love to engineer, design, and create. A healthy smile is universally admired as a sign of beauty and overall well-being.

What do you love about practicing?                                  
I take great pride in providing great patient experiences through painless dentistry and precision work. Breaking down barriers to make everyone that sits in my chair feel comfortable, attended to, and as relaxed as possible. It is important to me that every appointment creates progress towards a healthy mouth; whether through education or quality work. I love coming to work because every member of our team is enthusiastic about being here. We understand that exceptional patient care goes beyond what occurs
in the dental chair. Our front desk, hygienists, and assistants show up every day eager to make a
positive impact.

Fun fact about you?                                                              
I was president of the University Of Florida College Of Dentistry’s second oldest fraternity, Psi Omega. During my tenure, our chapter was awarded the National Chapter of the Year award and Volunteer Service Award. I was personally awarded the National Council Fraternal Achievement Award.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not at work?      
I enjoy exercising, spending time with friends and family, and relaxing on or near the water.

Why the paradise of FL?                                      
Originally from Phoenix, AZ, I relocated to the state of Florida to attend university. The most attractive part about living in Florida is the blend of a beautiful environment, outstanding night-life, gorgeous beaches, easy travel, and unique cultural dining experiences.
