I became a DPS evaluator because learning about new dental products is exciting and encourages me never to become complacent in our profession! I believe it to be imperative that this excitement drives my practice to deliver the very best care and commitment to our patients. I am dedicated to staying current with continuing education and exploring new and evidence-based products and materials that will benefit my patients, which is what I love best about evaluating for DPS – it allows me to carry on this commitment.
At age 13 my general dentist encouraged me to consider a career in dentistry, and that’s when I chose dentistry as my desired path. The unique ability that dentistry allows to solve and repair problems as well as offer immediate solutions to patients, with my own hands, was incredibly appealing. Now in practice, I treasure the opportunity to build personal connections with my patients that help me find the best solutions for their dental needs.
I love sharing my excitement in dentistry with others and often have interested young people shadow me in practice. I enjoy providing free dental care to local veterans, participating in the Arizona and New Mexico Missions of Mercy, being a Peer Reviewer for the AGD, and being involved in organized dentistry.
