I believe continuing education is very important: Investing the time in learning new technology and techniques will benefit my patients by allowing me to provide the highest quality of care. I attend the annual meetings of the California Dental Association, American Sleep and Breathing Academy, as well as being a UCSF Champion Provider Fellow, Vivos Therapeutics Clinical Advisor, Solea Laser Dentist, San Joaquin Dental Society member and a Community Breastfeeding Coalition where I am a featured presenter. In addition, I am a member of the American Dental Association, American Academy of Physiological Medicine & Dentistry, Academy of Laser Dentistry, A Breathe Institute Ambassador, Tethered Oral Tissues Trained and an Oral Myofunctional Therapist-Dentist.
Outside the Office
I grew up in San Francisco but really love the quiet life and the wonderful benefits of living and raising a family in Modesto where my husband was raised. We have raised two daughters and have a dog named Nashville who is often found at the office comforting patients.
When I’m not working you will find me traveling, playing golf, or reading. I enjoy teaching across the country for Vivos and Solea as well as visiting our children in Nashville and Los Angeles.
In the Community
Being active in the community is important to me because I share in the responsibility to make our area a better place to live and raise a family. I am personally passionate about giving all children — boys and especially girls — the benefit of reaching their dreams through education in science and math. I try to encourage children to do their best in school and attend college. I am always so thrilled when I hear that a little girl or boy wants to grow up and become a dentist!
I give back to the community by providing free elementary school dental screenings and presentations to the Modesto City Schools during the year. I am a member of Omega Nu; a service sorority that organizes fundraisers to benefit local charities and community organizations. I also volunteer with the Hope Medivan mobile dental clinic, RAM (Remote Access Medical/Dental) Clinics, and CDA (California Dental Association) Cares, which provides free dental care to the community.
I support numerous local charities that benefit the community; especially children, as well as the UOP Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.
I was previously the Alliance Medical Center Dental Director in Healdsburg, CA. There, I was the recipient of the National Health Service Corp Loan Repayment Program Recipient and, in 1999, the Department of Health and Human Services Regional Dentist of the Year.
