I consider it a privilege to be given the opportunity to influence the dental and overall health of the members of my community each day as a general dentist. Obtaining the skills and knowledge to make a positive impact on my patients’ lives is a very important aspect of my job.
Whether the case involves routine maintenance of a healthy oral cavity or a complicated dentition requiring several disciplines, I am a very motivated practitioner who is committed to helping my patients reach their dental goals.
Education and Training
I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. Upon completion of dental school, I spent the following year studying and gaining experience in the fields of general dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics, and acute care during a credentialing tour with the United States Navy.

A Little About Me
I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan and lived in nearby Brighton for my childhood years. I attended Bowling Green State University and earned my bachelor’s degree in biology and chemistry. I have always had a strong desire to live a life of service to others and thus decided to join the United States Navy as a dental officer upon the completion of my schooling. While in the Navy, I lived in Rhode Island, South Carolina, Mississippi, Illinois, and Okinawa, Japan.
Upon the resignation of my active-duty position, I moved with my husband and two sons to Woodville, Ohio, to be close to our family and friends. As a family, we are frequent visitors to the parks in the area, and love bike rides, basketball games, bonfires, and trips to our cabin in Northern Michigan where cell phones and the Internet still do not exist!
