Becoming a dentist has given me the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I feel very fortunate to help patients achieve and maintain excellent oral health. Dentistry is constantly changing and this offers new paths for creating beautiful smiles. It brings challenges and opportunities to meet the needs of our patients. I enjoy getting to know my patients. By learning what your dental-related goals are, I can help provide the guidance to achieve these goals.
I am a native of Stillwater, MN. I went to school at St. Olaf College, and earned my dental degree from Case Western School of Dental Medicine in Ohio. My education has taught me the importance of providing quality care that is centered on each unique individual. I enjoy practicing all aspects of dentistry and realize that the pursuit of clinical excellence in this wonderful profession is something that requires constant development, education, and patience. I have completed continuing education coursework at the Spear Institute in digital dentistry (CEREC) in addition to training in implant dentistry and oral surgery. I have also had the opportunity to provide care for undeserved populations in local communities and abroad on mission trips to Guatemala and the Dominican Republic.
I am optimistic and passionate about the field because I enjoy serving people. At our office, it is very rewarding to see you have a positive dental experience. We are fortunate to have the most advanced equipment, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the latest techniques for your well-being.
