Accepting new patients

I find it very satisfying to serve the people of the Tri-Cities; getting to provide quality oral health care while hearing all the fascinating stories our patients and parents have to offer is a joy to me. I enjoy getting to know our patients, and most of all I love educating our patients and parents about ways to maintain their oral health. My number one priority is to have our patients develop a positive dental attitude and maintain optimum oral health for a lifetime! Education and continuing education In order to become a dentist, I first attended the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, where I received a bachelor’s degree in natural science. Then I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. Later, I served a residency in pediatric dentistry at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. Although my formal education is complete, I always strive to learn about the latest dental techniques and technologies. By knowing the most comfortable and efficient procedures in my profession, I can provide my patients with the best experiences available, while offering parents the best options available.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, movies, and sporting events, and I am taking guitar lessons. My favorite activity, though, is spending time with my family outdoors!

Care Philosophy

As a dentist, I enjoy the daily interactions with my patients, and try to make them feel involved in and enthusiastic about taking care of their teeth. I like to focus on preventive interventions and enjoy discussing these strategies with parents.

I love finding different ways to connect with our patients. I enjoy taking the time to learn about patients’ hobbies and interests, I enjoy singing to my younger patients (they don’t care if I am in tune), and I like a good game of high five (up high, down low, too slow joe!!!). I am always eager to serve our Spanish-speaking patients and families; I lived in Ecuador for two years and speak Spanish fluently!
