What I love most about dentistry is the effect it can have on a person's life. One of my first patients in school underwent such a transformation both physically and mentally once his teeth were taken care of that it is as if he is a different person. We're still in touch today.
I was born and raised in Franklin county. After graduating from Franklin County High in 1995 I worked toward my first Bachelor of Science degree in Cellular Biology at the University of Georgia. During my undergraduate studies I worked as a chair-side dental assistant in the same dental office as my sister and the beginnings of my love of dentistry were formed.
I received my second Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Technology from the Medical College of Georgia. After graduation I managed an office laboratory for a rural health care clinic in Waynesboro for a short while. I then returned to the Medical College of Georgia to work in the Medical Technology program as an Educational Program Specialist focusing on the distance learning program.
In 2004 I was overjoyed to be accepted into the School of Dentistry at the Medical College of Georgia. I completed my requirements almost a semester early and was able to spend significant time interning at dental offices here in Athens. I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine in 2008 and I am very happy to return to Northeast Georgia.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the site for my practice. I hope you'll call to make an appointment at my office and see how I strive to make your dental experience one unlike any other.
