I first got into dentistry as a way to combine art and science, but truly my favorite part of dentistry is working with people every day and helping patients feel at ease at the dental office.
Before joining Bend Dental Group, I completed a general practice residency at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in downtown Chicago. During my residency, I worked in all phases of advanced dentistry, including implants and advanced prosthetics. I handled many dental emergencies, and worked closely with patients preparing for cardiac surgery, transplants, chemotherapy, or radiation.
I recently moved to Bend from Chicago with my husband Josh and Hank, our English Bulldog puppy. When I’m not in the office, I love exploring all that Bend and Central Oregon has to offer, from checking out new restaurants to exploring the trails and river. (Hank comes along on all of our adventures — he loves the great outdoors!)
I am thrilled to join the Bend Dental Group team and share the mission of providing the highest quality of dental care in a comfortable and caring atmosphere!
