Favorite Aspect of Dentistry

“I love being able to transform a smile. A patient once came to me embarrassed with the way his smile had looked for the past 20 years. I was able to redesign it with ceramic crowns. I’ll always remember the excitement in his eyes the moment we handed him the mirror. ”

Tool She Can’t Live Without

The Optrasculpt by Ivoclar. “The pad on the end of it makes aesthetic composites so easy to place and shape.”

Sage Advice

“Don’t limit your yourself to learning only about dentistry. Read books and take CE classes geared toward running a business and becoming a great leader. Even though those aren’t specific to dentists, the fundamentals will still help you be a successful dentist and business owner.”
