My goal is to treat our patients and their families for life, which means I have the opportunity to develop lasting relationships with them. I love seeing patients year after year and hearing about what is happening in their lives, and sharing what is happening in mine.
I feel so incredibly fortunate to have the team I do. I have never worked with such a dedicated team of dental professionals. They genuinely care about our patients and each other. My team is the foundation of the Bull Mountain Family Dentistry family.
Education and Continuing Education
An Oregon native, I call Tigard home and am very excited to be serving the community in which I live. I graduated Cum Laude from Portland State University and obtained my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Oregon Health & Science University.
It is my mission to provide our patients with the best care available in a comfortable and positive environment. In order for me to succeed in this, it is imperative to keep informed of the latest techniques and technologies. I frequently participate in continuing education to ensure I remain up to date with the most leading-edge techniques in dentistry. I regularly attend local study clubs, which gives me an opportunity to discuss cases with my peers.

In the Community
One of the things I am most passionate about is providing the excellent care we are known for to those who might not have the resources available to them. I have had the distinct honor of working with some amazing organizations—Northwest Medical Teams and Missions of Mercy—providing dental treatment to those most in need.
My team and I are especially excited about the time we have spent with one of our local schools, Alberta Rider Elementary, where we regularly volunteer our time providing oral health screenings, hygiene instruction, and dietary advice. There have even been occasions we were able to offer treatment to children in desperate need of care. I can think of nothing more fulfilling than giving back to the community.
Outside the Office
My husband, who is also a dentist, and I have two sons, eight-year old John, and four-year old Cyrus. Our family loves getting outdoors as much as possible. We enjoy camping, and our boys love soccer, golf, basketball, as well as teeball. As an avid runner, I enjoy participating in marathons and half marathons in my free time.
