Changing Lives with Gentle Dentistry

I chose to become a dentist because I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people around me. It gives me a huge feeling of satisfaction when I see the positive change in our patients’ lives because of the quality care they received from us. It’s rewarding to see my patients leave with a smile and feel better about their health.

I would not be able to provide the level of care my patients deserve without my team. They are well trained and have years of experience in making patients comfortable while improving their health. My team listens to patients’ needs and concerns and offers their full attention during visits.

Because of my team and their dedication to excellence, our practice has a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere, where even the most nervous patients are able to let go of their fears and know they are safe.


I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago. However, dentistry is a constantly changing field. Research yields new technologies, materials, and techniques, all of which can improve patient care and results. It is my responsibility to stay current on the latest developments and bring the highest quality to the practice.

Continuing education is a vital part of my practice. I always choose coursework that will help me provide the best oral healthcare for my patients, and allow them to keep their teeth and their healthy smile for a lifetime. Most recently, I have focused on continuing my education in aesthetic dentistry, dental implants, and Invisalign® clear aligners.

My patients place a lot of trust in me to provide the best treatments, proven options, and lasting results. Continuing education enables me to deliver the care they deserve.

It is a privilege to provide dental care to the Chicagoland community. My priority is to treat every patient with the highest standard of care by taking extra time to listen closely, ensuring comfort during appointments, and forming a treatment plan with individual patient concerns in mind.
I graduated from Midwestern University’s College of Dental Medicine. I then pursued advanced dental training in a hospital residency setting at St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria, IL. During my residency, I worked in the emergency department, performed surgeries in the operating room on patients under general anesthesia, and worked with local specialists to provide the best care possible for my patients. After hours, I enjoy attending continuing education courses to stay up to date with the latest research and techniques, volunteering at various charity events and juvenile centers, and attending the ISDS Capital Conference to speak with senators and representatives about important dental issues. This has all shaped my practice philosophy of putting my patients first.
When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family, and friends. I have a newborn daughter and I love watching her grow and reach new milestones.
