What is your favorite part about dentistry?
I love working with patients to help improve their overall health and their smile. It’s such a blessing to see someone go from pain and hiding their smile to having a healthy mouth and sharing their smile with everyone.
How do you help someone overcome their concerns regarding dentistry?
Listening is the best way to help anyone overcome their obstacles to achieving their best level of oral health. Providing a space where the patient can discuss their past experiences, their current concerns, and their goals for the future allows the patient and their provider to develop a plan that meets the patient’s needs financially, mentally, and physically.
What do you look forward to most during a day at HCD?
I love to see my team every morning and start the day with their smiling faces during our morning huddle!
What would you do with your 15 minutes of fame?
Hopefully nothing too embarrassing that would follow me on social media for the rest of my life.
In your opinion, what is the most beautiful place on earth and why?
I love the prairies of Kansas and the deserts in New Mexico.
