Dentistry has been my passion from a young age after an early childhood fall contributed to countless hours spent in the dentist’s office.
Having been a dentist for ten years, I understand what it is like to be both in the treatment chair and on the side of it! Now more than ever, I think we are appreciating how connected the mouth is to the rest of the body, and my goal is to help you live your best life. I strive to be gentle, kind, and caring, all while diligently providing you the highest quality dental care possible. I will take the time to listen to your unique concerns and expectations and will help you in all possible ways to maintain your health and your smile.
New England was my home for many years.
I grew up in a small town on the coast of Maine and I completed my dental education in Boston at Tufts University. My love for the mountains and the big Western skies grew after completing post-graduate studies at the University of New Mexico. Since then, I’ve completed hundreds of hours of continuing education connecting the mouth to the whole body. This includes everything from nutrition to sleep and breathing! I strive to be on the cutting edge with techniques, technology, and the latest evidence-based research.
My dedication to airway development and infant lip and tongue ties began with my own son when I was able to watch him blossom and thrive immediately following his own simple tongue tie procedure. I am a certified Invisalign provider and hold a certificate from the American Board of Laser Surgery for Laser Dentistry. I have additional training in cosmetic dentistry, root canals (endodontics), dental implant placement and restoration, family dentistry, invisalign, occlusion and TMD, root canal, soft tissue grafting, oral surgery, and dental sleep medicine.

When I’m not at the Lakewood, Colorado dental clinic or listening to dental podcasts, you’ll likely find me out running the trails and training for marathons, drinking coffee (try Hello coffee down the block), baking healthy (and unhealthy) treats, golfing, listening to live music, and spending time dressing my babies and dog in ridiculous costumes.
