I feel blessed to have the opportunity to contribute to so many people’s lives. I always want the best for my patients, for them to leave with the most brilliant, healthiest smile possible, as well as the ability to keep it that way for a lifetime. I believe in providing compassionate care and have the honor of working beside some wonderful people every day. I can count on them to be on the same page as me. It is a pure joy to come in day after day knowing that I will be able to help others.
I began my dental career while an undergrad at Elizabeth City State. I worked as an orthodontic assistant while earning my Bachelors of Science. I then attended University of North Carolina Chapel Hill School of Dentistry, where I graduated with honors in 2003 with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Continuing Education and Professional Affiliations
I strongly believe in the value of continuing education because of the many exciting developments in dentistry. It is a key to providing my patients with the best oral care available. I find myself learning something new every year to stay abreast of the new technologies and techniques. I have also trained in conscious sedation and was certified in Lumineers® and CEREC®.
