Dentistry is rewarding, challenging, and amazing all at the same time. Being able to work with a team that is like family and taking great care of patients is so fulfilling. I love the challenge of helping my patients get out of pain or improving their self-confidence, and making our patients feel comfortable and at ease at our office.
I know that I make a difference in my patients’ lives, and that means everything to me. Dental visits have notoriously had a bad stigma, but I like to transform that outlook to a positive experience that patients look forward to having.
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.
Dr. Enrique and I have been providing our very best dentistry to the Monterey Peninsula since December 2010. We have the best team around! The women at our office make it what it is. Our patients come to us for the entire experience, and we provide nothing less than the best.
Dr. Enrique and I have lived in Carmel, CA for six years. We have a son Erick who is five and will be going to Kindergarten next August. He is growing up so fast! When I am not working, I am hanging out with my awesome kid. We love going to the beach and hiking the trails. I enjoy running and Taekwondo, and have even been starting to surf.
