What brought me to Dentistry

I love being able to work and give back to my community. Throughout my undergraduate studies, I knew I wanted to do something related to healthcare. With support and encouragement from my family, I found dentistry allowed me to establish connections with patients, solve unique problems, and positively change people’s lives. Dentistry is a great fit for me, as it allows me to combine my love for science, art, and working with my hands in order to truly help people.

My Education & Experience

I studied Chemistry at Carson-Newman after earning an academic scholarship. After that, I went to Meharry Medical College, where I fell in love with the art of dentistry. After graduation, I was able to further develop my skills at residency at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center in Cleveland Ohio. I am committed to continuing education courses in order to remain current with state-of-the-art technology, procedures, and materials in dentistry. I am always looking for more opportunities to advance my clinical skills to better serve patients. I am an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry and the International Congress of Oral Implantology.

Overall, I have spent the last 8 years practicing and learning about dentistry, and I’ve certainly enjoyed it. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing improvement in the oral health, appearance, and function of a patient and knowing that I’ve helped in some way.

Life Outside of Dentistry

When I’m not at the dental office, I love spending time outside. Whether it is hiking, golfing, running, skiing, or just going for a walk, I can’t get enough of the outdoors. I also enjoy traveling and seeing the world. One of my favorite places to visit is Jackson Hole, Wyoming for beautiful scenery and fun adventure.
