Meet The Doctor

As a busy mom and a dentist, I understand the time and effort that it takes to come in to the dentist office.  I know how life sometimes gets in the way of taking care of yourself.  The truth however is that having a beautiful, healthy, confident smile can make a huge impact on your life. I understand what a personal experience it is to see the dentist, and know what it is like to be on the other end of the dental chair.  Therefore, I respect both your time and your trust in letting me take care of you and your family.

Originally from San Diego, I studied Physiology, Neuroscience, and Mathematics at UCSD, along with being a cellist in the La Jolla Symphony Orchestra.  It was there that I received my Bachelor of Science degree.  Immediately following, I attended the University of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco and graduated with honors receiving my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 2005.  I have been listed in the Who’s Who Registry for Professionals and Businesses, and America's Best Dentists guide.  I am a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Sacramento District Dental Society.

I have wanted to be a dentist for as long as I can remember, and have spent my life in pursuit of doing what I cherish.  Dentistry is truly a passion for me and puts me in the unique position of doing many things that I love.  I enjoy spending quality time taking care of, and visiting with my patients, and I love the artistic element of working with my hands.   Much of the day-to-day work that I do may go unnoticed, but the truth is I am making tiny little works of art inside of peoples mouths every day.  It’s a very exciting thing.  Dentistry also lets me spend time with my family.  I have a loving husband and two beautiful young boys, and we are lucky to call El Dorado Hills our home.
