To current and future White Center Smiles Patients,
Thank you for stopping by to get to know a little bit more about me. One question that I’m always asked is: why dentistry? Why did you choose this profession? Dentistry is art. It is precision. It is teaching others how to create and maintain a healthy and beautiful smile. I enjoy the challenges and the victories my profession grants me, and every day is a fresh, new experience. My goal is to help others in realizing all things are possible.
I grew up in historic Philadelphia, Pennsylvania after emigrating there as a young child. After earning my Doctor of Medicine in Dentistry (DMD) from the Kornberg School of Dentistry at Temple University, I moved to Wichita, Kansas to complete my Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency. Not long after, I took a road trip to Seattle, fell in love with the Pacific Northwest, and have been here ever since!
I have chosen to practice in the White Center community because it is a neighborhood built by entrepreneurs from all walks of life. While being one of the most diverse areas in King County, the community boasts of a reputation for being close-knit, where people support one another and band together to help those in need. I like to think that with my diverse background, and my humble beginnings, my story could fit into this rich tapestry as well. This is why I named my practice White Center Smiles. I wanted this office to be the community’s dental office.
Everyone I’ve met here in White Center has really helped me to be able to make it my home. Getting to know you all is a major perk of the job! To let you know a little bit about me; I love traveling domestically and internationally, experiencing different cultures and sampling new cuisines along the way. I am always excited to hear new dining recommendations. I love being a part of the White Center community!
