I was born and raised in beautiful Sarasota, FL. I attended the local community college, which is now State College of Florida, for two years. I discovered a passion for dentistry while undergoing orthodontic(braces) therapy at this time. I then transferred to University of South Florida as a biology major. In 1997, I graduated from USF with honors and was accepted to the University of Florida College of Dentistry. I graduated from UF in 2001 and took over the 30 year practice of Dr. Ridley Ward. It was a smooth transition since Dr. Ward was up to date with all of his equipment and techniques. Since then, I have advanced my education in the field of cosmetic, implant and sedation dentistry. I am IV sedation certified and have two fellowships in implant dentistry. I have also gotten married and now have three beautiful children. We, as a family, enjoy all of the wonderful activities Sarasota has to offer such as golf, tennis, fishing and Great Food.
