Originally from Tahlequah, Oklahoma, my husband and I have lived in this area our entire lives and we’re so happy to be serving Tulsa and the surrounding communities. After graduating from Northeastern State University with a marketing degree, my journey led me to the love of dentistry and helping others with their overall health.
I worked in the dental field as an assistant for a few years, then my husband and I moved to Oklahoma City where I attended the University of Oklahoma Dental School. What a great experience! I graduated in the top 10% of my class and obtained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery then was accepted into the Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. This program sharpened my skills and gave me great experience treating more complex oral health issues.
My dental philosophy is centered around providing the best dental treatment possible and partnering with the patient to determine the path forward. I believe that oral hygiene is extremely important to a person’s overall quality of life. Studies have shown that oral hygiene is directly linked to physical ailments such as heart disease as well as linked to mental health and happiness. In the end, I love to partner with patients to help them feel confident in their oral health and maybe more importantly, be happy with their smiles!
I have experience with placing and restoring implants, removing white spots from teeth without drilling, full mouth reconstruction, cosmetic dentistry, pediatric oral and airway development, fillings, crowns, bridges, removable dentures, night guards, and snore appliances. I also have dental specialists that I work closely with to help deliver the best care possible to my patients.
As for my personal life, my husband, Daniel, grew up in Mounds, Oklahoma and works in Human Resources. Together we have two great kids. Nolan is our tender-hearted, rule follower and Piper is… not. (She’s miss independent, funny and sporty). We attend church in Tulsa and are involved in volunteering with music and the children’s ministry. We have also both served at the biggest free dental event in Oklahoma – Mission of Mercy – where dental professionals volunteer and provide free treatment across Oklahoma.
