I originally went to college to become a high school math teacher. My plans quickly changed after colliding heads with an opposing player during an intramural soccer game. I suffered a concussion and had my front teeth knocked out. I saw many different dentists over the next few months. Some were helpful and caring, and some were not. I wanted to become a dentist that was helpful and caring. What is the most satisfying thing about dentistry? When a patient says, "That didn't hurt at all!" It's wonderful to see people come in the door afraid of the dentist, and leave with a smile on their face. Why did you choose Cascade Dental? I wanted to work in an office where I could develop a long-term relationship with patients in a professional, comfortable environment. All providers and staff here have proven to be dedicated to patients and their well-being. This is place where I would take my family."
