She has been a lifelong Michigan football fan, having grown up with her father as an alum and spending eight years there herself. She is also actively involved in her church.
“When I was in high school and started thinking about what I wanted to do when I ‘grew up,’ I considered some of the things that I most enjoyed: art, science and helping people. My Aunt was my hygienist and after spending some time in her office, I discovered that dentistry could uniquely combine these passions and knew it would be a perfect fit. I love the variety that
general dentistry provides and helping patients achieve a confident and comfortable smile. Being a dentist requires precision and attention to detail, but another big part that I enjoy is getting to know patients and helping them to feel comfortable in the dental chair. This patient-centered approach makes each day enjoyable and fulfilling and I am so thankful for the opportunity to practice dentistry with the amazing team at 44 West Dental.”
