Dentistry is such an important part of overall health. Getting to be a part of a profession that can improve health, boost confidence, and make people feel good is incredible! I love that I get to care for the appreciative people of the Monterey Peninsula. My thoughtful approach coupled with continuous learning allows me to provide high-quality dental care.
Knowing that I have made a difference in a person’s life is the reason I love what I do. Dental visits have had a notoriously bad stigma, and I like to transform that outlook to a positive experience that patients look forward to having.
One of the best parts of being a dentist is getting to spend time with my patients: talking with them and learning about their families and lives. I love earning their trust and making them feel comfortable and calm in the dental setting.
Dedication to Education
Dr. Enrique and I have been providing our very best dentistry to the Monterey Peninsula since December 2010. I always knew that I wanted to be in the medical field, I just wasn’t sure which area.
When I was in college, I shadowed my local dentist on my summer break and I was hooked! I loved how I could help someone who was in pain or feeling self-conscious. I attended Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine for my Doctorate of Dental Medicine, and also met my amazing husband Enrique.
In the years since I graduated, I’ve taken advantage of numerous continuing education opportunities. There is always more to learn about dentistry — it is a never-ending process. I love improving my patients’ smiles with Invisalign®, so it is important to learn as much as I can about it. The more I know, the more beneficial I am to my patient.
Providing an Exceptional Experience
Our patients come to us for the entire experience, and we provide nothing less than the best. Our team is the most amazing group that I have had the pleasure to work with. They share the same vision of what a dental practice should be. They are caring, have exceptional customer service, love to learn new things, have the most wonderful attitudes, and best of all, love to laugh!
I feel so fortunate to have such a talented husband, Enrique, to share both my personal and professional life with. It is an ideal situation since we are passionate about different facets of dentistry. I have one incredible son, Erick, who brings joy to my life every day. He is smart, curious, funny, and kind. We also have an adorable Mini Schnauzer named Louie.
Outside of work, I enjoy being with my family in one of the most beautiful places in the country. I love watching my husband and son surfing and my dog running in the sand.
