I’ve been with ADS since August of 2009, but been practicing as a hygienist since 1996. I have always loved my profession, but since coming on with ADS and experiencing the team atmosphere, extensive continuing education and working with the latest technology, I have become beyond passionate about my opportunities to connect with my patients and become their total health advocate. Studies have presented overwhelming evidence connecting the health of our bodies to the health of our mouths and the opportunity to educate and care for patients to resolve possible medical complications has been so rewarding! I realize that visiting the dentist can cause anxiety for many people. It is my personal goal to provide an atmosphere of comfort, care and trust so that everyone can get the help they need and leave feeling good. Outside of the office I enjoy time with family and friends, experiencing the outdoors and staying healthy through good nutrition and exercise!
