I often get asked the question, “What made you want to become a dentist?” When I was young, I was never afraid of the dentist. I never had the bad experiences that so many of my patients tell me about. After meeting a phenomenal dentist who gave a presentation on how much he loved what he did, I decided dentistry was the career for me. My aim and mission is to provide my patients with the same encounters I had growing up with gentle, caring dentists. Many of those dentists are now my mentors. I want patients to leave the office being awed by service that exceeds their expectations.
I began my training at Hampton University graduating with a degree in Molecular Biology. From there I attended UNC Chapel Hill School of Dentistry where I earned my DDS in 2005 and have been practicing since then. My training continues daily as I learn something new every day. One of the things I love about dentistry is that it is ever changing and I am committed to learning more and making sure I keep up the advances of the profession. As a part of that commitment I hold memberships in the University Dental Study Group and the AJ Williams Study Club.
I will likely be one of the first people you encounter at Piedmont Dentistry. I have over 17 years of experience in the dental field. Helping people is my passion and I love that I get to build relationships with patients here at Piedmont Dentistry.
I am here to help with patient questions, scheduling appointments, and to assist with understanding benefits. We are a little family here and we want patients to feel that when they come to our office. Outside of my Piedmont Dentistry family I enjoy spending time with my children and friends. I also enjoy having fun. I would love to have you as a member of my Piedmont Family
I have over 23 years of experience as a dental hygienist. I knew at age 16 that I had a passion for dentistry. I love helping patients overcome their dental fears and working with them to achieve a beautiful healthy smile.
I’m originally from Western New York and have been married to my high school sweetheart for 23 years. We have three children and two dogs. I love living in the south and in my spare time I like to spend time with my family, scrapbooking and going to car shows. I enjoy meeting new people and love to learn new things. I hope to see you soon.
I am a dental assistant at Piedmont Dentistry. I have been a part of the dental field since 2008. I have a bachelor’s degree from UNCC. I enjoy working with patients and making them feel comfortable. The thing that I like about being a part of the Piedmont Dentistry team is that we all work together to make sure our patients are having a good experience. Knowing that I am helping people makes me love coming in to work every day. It really doesn’t feel like work. When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my son, family, and friends.
