I love being an orthodontist. It gives me the opportunity to meet wonderful people and have a life-long impact on their lives. There is nothing more rewarding than working with patients and their families and seeing the changes we can make together.
I come from a dental family: my father and sister are orthodontists and my little brother was recently accepted to dental school at Tufts University in Boston, my alma mater. I became an orthodontist because I wanted to improve the lives of others, while working in an occupation that blends the arts and sciences. Orthodontics is the perfect fit for me.
I enjoy working with patients of all ages—whether it be a child in need of early interceptive treatment to set up a good foundation for their bite, an adolescent looking to build a healthy smile for life, an adult ready to try Invisalign® treatment to finally fix that crooked tooth that’s bothered them for years, or even patients in need of an interdisciplinary care team to undertake major restorative work. In every case, it’s exciting to see how each patient transforms during treatment and how happy and confident they are when we’re finished.
I received my bachelor of science in Biology at Villanova University, where I was co-captain of the varsity tennis team. I undertook my dental and orthodontic training at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, one of the top dental schools in the country.
I am committed to offering each patient the best treatment options, customized to the person’s specific clinical and personal needs. I hold steadfast to high standards of clinical excellence, and have gained board certification in orthodontics.
In order to stay current on changes in techniques, technologies and materials, I complete many hours of continuing orthodontic education each year. In addition to studying relevant journals, I regularly attend meetings and conferences and participate in seminars and lectures. My patients deserve only the best care with the most up-to-date, evidence-based treatment. Along those lines, I am also committed to organized dentistry, and currently serve as the President of the San Juan Basin Dental Society, and Secretary/Treasurer of the Rocky Mountain Society of Orthodontics.
I am truly blessed to live in such a wonderful community. My husband, Eben, works remotely as an editor for Harvard Business Review and is an enthusiastic outdoorsman. Together we enjoy playing tennis, hiking, travel and spoiling our fur baby, an Irish Wolfhound named Rosie.
