Dentistry is a unique field and profession that requires proficiency in multiple different areas including the biomedical sciences, material science, artistry, and manual dexterity. The field of dentistry was an enticing career because of my interest in healthcare along with the previously mentioned aspects of this field. I love art and helping people and dentistry allows me to combine these two interests. I am able to create smiles while also helping people to achieve and maintain their oral health needs. In addition, dentistry is a lifelong career where I am able to develop rapport with my patients. Being able to form lifelong relationships with my patients is a great feeling and being able to care for their oral health adds immense joy to this profession.

Away from the Practice
I am a proud Michigan native being born and raised in the Plymouth area. Having completed all my educational training locally, I am excited to be able to practice in close proximity to my hometown. I love art with a particular interest in carpentry/woodworking and music, specifically the electric guitar. I love crafting new pieces from decorative chests to furniture. I also started two bands while in dental school and love going to concerts whether it is a small scale venue or larger arena.
