Board Certified Pediatric Dentist


I want to provide the safest and highest quality dental care to the community, including prevention and oral healthcare education. The families that we serve will receive caring and respectful comprehensive dental care for children in a family-friendly environment. We will never recommend anything for your child that we wouldn't for our own children.

Volunteer/Service Experience

Give Kids A Smile, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Mission of Mercy


I grew up in Sarasota, Florida and have been practicing dentistry since 2013. I come from a family in the healthcare field where caring for others was always a top priority: my dad is a dentist, mom a nurse, older brother a surgeon, younger brother a support staff in a dental office and my youngest sister is a physicians assistant. My dad has practiced pediatric dentistry in Sarasota, Florida for over 30 years and inspired me to get into pediatric dentistry. I attended Pine View School in Sarasota before heading off to college at Florida Gulf Coast University to pursue my dream of becoming a pediatric dentist. After completing a degree in Biology and Chemistry, I moved to Gainesville, Florida to start dental school at The University of Florida. At dental school, I was heavily involved in the pediatric, oral surgery and special needs craniofacial team clinics. After dental school, I furthered my education by completing the pediatric residency program at The University of Florida. I then decided to move to Houston, Texas to start my dream practice where kids can have a truly special experience at each dental visit. I strive to provide the safest and highest quality comprehensive dental care to children in a family-friendly, fun environment. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, being involved in my community, sailing, boating, working out, listening to music and cooking.
