I was raised in Austin, Minnesota. I have a family connection to dentistry. My father has been practicing dentistry in Austin since 1973. I have always felt a desire to serve others and have had an affinity for art and science. My journey began with earning an undergraduate degree (B.S.) from the University of Minnesota Duluth, and went on to attend dental school at the University of Minnesota.
In 1999, I began practicing in Austin with my father. In 2008, after nine years of successful practice, I discovered my true passion in dentistry, creating beautiful smiles and complex restorative dentistry. Today, we are still a general dental practice, however, we can truly provide esthetic and comprehensive care at the highest level.
Being current with the ever changing profession of dentistry is my commitment. I have studied at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI Global), founded by Dr. William Dickerson. I enrolled in LVI to improve my skills and knowledge in cosmetic and complex restorative dentistry. It has solidified my inspiration to provide great service and to use only materials I would place in my own mouth to my guests.
I strongly believe each individual deserves the choice to have the best dentistry has to offer. My goal is to provide my guests with the area’s most advanced dental healthcare in a comfortable, relaxed environment. Bringing the art and science of cosmetic and restorative dentistry to my guests and helping them have a beautiful smile is one of the most satisfying things I do in my life.
