I truly believe I was meant to be an orthodontist. It fits perfectly with my personality in so many ways: I am detail oriented, love being around people, and have a genuine interest in improving the lives of those around me. Even as a child, I knew that my career needed to blend my two interests — art and science — and no profession does that better than orthodontics. I also get to work with the best team on the planet.
I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I then went on to dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where I graduated Valedictorian with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I completed my orthodontic training at Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas and received both a certificate in orthodontics and a Master of Science degree.
The most exciting thing about orthodontics is that it is always changing and advancing its technology to better serve patients. I practice completely differently today than I did even five years ago! Thanks to continuing education, we can keep up with these changes and see first-hand the positive affect it has on our patients’ treatment, our profession, and on our office. It’s all very exciting!
