I have had the pleasure of practicing dentistry for 30 years. I've had many experiences with many people and have been blessed to have the knowledge and skill to help people with their oral and overall general health. Transforming smiles and bolstering self-esteem in patients is one of the most rewarding aspects of our profession. Without a caring, knowledgeable and organized team surrounding me, I would not be successful in my professional endeavors. I am very grateful for each and every one of them!
I grew up in Springfield, Ohio but have lived and practiced dentistry in the central Ohio area. I have two children, which keep me quite active outside of the office.I try to stay physically fit and healthy through exercise and work around the house and yard. The Buckeyes, Bengals, and Blue Jackets keep me occupied as well as most sports stories.
Dentistry has been very rewarding. I have learned much about myself, much about relationship building with patients and team. I look forward to establishing many more wonderful relationships with new people.
What year did you begin working in this office? 2015
What year did you begin working in the dental field in general? 2014
Why do you love working with your team? The dentist is a dreadful place for some patients, we make it more approachable. As a team we come together to make patients feel comfortable. We not only consider ourselves a team but we are also like family. Our goal is to have each patient we see, leave feeling like they are a part of our family.
In my spare time, I love spending time with my daughter, family and my Great Dane Paisley. Going off-road riding and attending dirt track races are two of my favorite activities to do while not at work.

What is your favorite part of your job?
Hands down the trusting relationships I build with my patients while providing excellent dental care. I take great pride in knowing I help my patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health.
Why I love working with my Team? I have the pleasure of working side by side with a Team that has become more like family than co-workers! We treat our office like our home and our patients become just like family as well! We all work together every day with common goals to help as many patients as possible achieve their individual oral health needs!
When I am not at work I am spending time with my 3 wonderful children and my fiancé Matt. I love spending all the time I can outside taking in a sports game or working in my flower gardens.
