“Dentistry is the perfect outlet for my perfectionist personality! Success is in the details! It is a combination of art, science, and engineering that keeps my mind and hands happily busy. Dentistry allows me to interact and engage with the people of my community, watch their families grow, and establish lasting relationships. It provides the opportunity for me to have a career and pursue my dreams of being a wife and mother.”
