A Dedication to Patients’ Smiles
The nature of orthodontic treatment allows me the unique opportunity to form meaningful relationships with my patients as we get to know each other during our appointments. I treat every patient with the honesty and integrity that I expect from my own healthcare professionals. As a mother of two, I understand that orthodontic treatment is a considerable investment for most families, and I strive to provide the highest quality results for my patients.
My team and I are dedicated to providing our patients with a great experience. We strive to give every patient personalized attention and ensure that their goals are met. I look forward to going into work every day because I truly love what I do. I feel that being able to provide orthodontic care to my patients is a great privilege that I do not take for granted.
Education and Continuing Education
In order to become an orthodontist, I attended the University of Minnesota Dental School, graduating in 2008. I moved to the small community of Ladysmith, Wisconsin, to practice general dentistry for four years in an underserved area. In 2012, I returned to the University of Minnesota to complete my orthodontic residency and graduated from that program in 2014.
Staying up to date with the latest orthodontic techniques enables me to provide high-quality, efficient orthodontic care, and helps me better serve my patients. I strive to stay current with the latest innovations and techniques in orthodontics by attending continuing education classes and reading orthodontic journals and publications.
