I believe dentistry is what I was created to do. My heart genuinely aches when I see patients with advanced decay – especially small children, but there is always hope with restoration and prevention. It is such a blessing to have the education, training, and the most advanced technology available to be able to alleviate pain, increase function, and restore total oral health to all my patients.
As a Public Health Specialist, I always integrate prevention and education with dental care and consider the many different social factors and family situations that affect dental diseases.
Being a mom certainly isn’t unique, but I think my approach to treating my littlest patients is. Every time I treat children, I imagine that they are my own, and my motherly instinct compels me to do everything I can to make them feel calm and reassured.
I believe every patient is a blessing from God, and He has given me the privilege and the responsibility to care for them. I pray for my patients at the start of each day and am committed to honoring The Lord in every aspect of the care I provide. The bible says that every person is made in the image of God, and that has implications for the way they should be treated. Each patient matters as a person, not just as a case for treatment.
It’s something my husband said, “You always see something special in the most ordinary things.”
