I have always immediately been drawn to the smiles of other people and I love that my job allows me to help patients feel confident to smile more!
I chose to pursue dentistry fully aware that it requires lifelong commitments of chasing excellence and advocating for patients. My goal as a dentist is to provide the best quality care that serves my patients and to find solutions to every one of their concerns. One of the most rewarding experiences of being a dentist is the positive, personal relationships with people. When a patient trusts me as their oral healthcare provider, it is an honor and not something that I take for granted.
Education and Experience
Originally from Florence, SC, I attended Francis Marion University where I graduated Cum Laude from the University Honors Program. I have been passionate about dentistry since I was a middle school kid, and I fulfilled my dream by attending the Medical University of South Carolina and receiving my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
As a lifetime learner, I am constantly finding better ways to practice and serve my patients in the ever-changing field of dentistry. I am committed to service and enjoy volunteering at free/reduced cost clinics in the community. I am also an active member of the American Dental Association and South Carolina Dental Association.
Outside the Office
When I’m not at work and the weather is nice, I will most likely be found outdoors! I enjoy playing volleyball, sitting outside reading books, and going on hikes or long walks. I am always traveling somewhere new with my family and friends and am working towards visiting all the U.S. National Parks.
