My passion for dental health started with my mother, Susan, a dental hygienist. She instilled in me a love for dentistry, and I applied to dental school fresh out of high school and attended an early acceptance program at the University of Florida. My undergraduate degree is in Human Nutrition, and I went on to continue dental school and graduated in the top 8 of my class. I continued my education at a residency program at Palmetto Health Richland, here in Columbia, SC. While in residency, I met my future husband, Michael, at a gamecock tailgate and quickly decided that there is just too much to love about Columbia to leave. We have three children, Ethan, Weston, and Layton Rose, and a very fuzzy dog, Etta.
I hope that, in my practice, in all that we say, and all that we do, we are a testament to God's love for all people.
