I draw my energy from the kids I see! I am a firm believer that a patient’s oral health reflects their general health so developing good oral hygiene and dietary habits are important. There is nothing quite as rewarding as helping a child become comfortable in the dental setting and I strive to explain appointments and procedures in terms our little patients understand. I am a graduate of the University of Iowa College of Dentistry and have treated children for the past 13 years. When I’m not seeing patients I enjoy time outside (running with our dog, hiking, skiing, being on the water or beach) with my husband and our 3 boys.
