Meet Our Team

"My team is so awesome!

I have learned that finding each team member’s gift, and supporting them as they develop and express that gift, is essential to a thriving practice.

Each member of my team is kind, compassionate, and caring. They genuinely want the best for patients and work together deliver exceptional dentistry and customer care with every interaction.

I have been blessed by God in having been given this team."
