As a pediatric dentist, I am committed to making every dental visit a positive and enjoyable experience for your child.
I believe that each child is unique and deserving of dental care that addresses their individual needs, offered with kindness, patience, and compassion. In doing so, I strive to create a trusting relationship with your child and with you, helping your child achieve a lifetime of excellent oral and overall health.
By meeting your child where they are, and listening to and involving them in their dental care, we develop a rapport. I offer the same to you: I want you to understand my recommendations, to be informed and engaged, and for us to be partners in developing and maintaining your child’s healthiest, happiest smile.
I am dedicated to ensuring that every child in my care receives the highest quality oral healthcare and develops a passion for caring for their smile!

Beyond the Office
I grew up on the eastern shore, in Withams, Virginia, and now live in Cincinnati. When I’m not in the office, I can be found at the gym, shopping, or trying new restaurants – I’m a major foodie! I also enjoy experimenting with new recipes and make time to explore nature, too.
I have had the privilege of providing dental care for underserved individuals throughout Maryland, with the Mission of Mercy and Special Olympics organizations. I have also served internationally, in Kathmandu and Surkhet, Nepal.
As an oral health professional, I recognize the importance of access to dental care, as well as the barriers many people face in accessing that care. Being active in my local community, as well as throughout the world, is a way for me to help people without regular access to dentistry. By providing care, I help individuals improve their oral health and their overall quality of life!
