 Meet our Reno/Sparks area Dental Team



One question many of patients ask is why I decided to become a dentist in the Reno Sparks area.  I remember wanting to be a dentist when I was twelve years old. As I progressed through school, my thoughts of a career never changed.  Turns out it’s a great profession where I get to meet a lot of nice people.  I get to help patients feel more confident and comfortable. 


After graduating Reed High School, I received a degree in Pre-Dentistry from UNR. My education continued in Omaha Nebraska at Creighton Dental School. I chose Creighton because of strong testing scores and their lack of specialty programs.  I noticed that schools with specialty programs like endodontics, orthodontics, and oral surgery would leave fewer interesting cases for the dental students.  Dentistry is culmination of many different procedures. Having knowledge of all aspects of dentistry makes is easier to communicate with patients.


Through education and communication, I hope to reduce your dental needs.  My philosophy is to treat through prevention rather than through necessity.  With the knowledge and technology available today dental pain can be a thing of the past.  So much has changed in dentistry over the years and I hope the keep the community informed with this website.
