Why dentistry?
I knew I wanted to be a health care provider from a young age. Dentistry offers the opportunity to interact with multiple disciplines, flexible schedules and several types of people and patients. It doesn’t matter what you do in life as long as you do it with passion.
Why are you an ADA member?
Organized dentistry is a major means of having our dental voices heard. The networking opportunities are invaluable; in just three years, I have met dentists both new and experienced and have established lifelong friendships.
What has been the best time of your career so far?
Working in a federally qualified health center in southeastern Arizona has expanded my exposure to so much more than I feel private practice could. The ability to provide health care should not be based on a financial incentive, and to see some of these people struggling and experiencing setbacks I’ll never know … Putting a smile on their faces is all the motivation I need to show up to work each day.
When I’m not practicing, I’m:
Spending time outdoors, camping, hiking and skiing. I’m also a crossword-aholic.
One fun fact about me:
I love visiting our national parks and monuments. I bring my national parks passport with me on every vacation and hope to see all of them throughout my lifetime. #nerdalert
