Descriptive Qualities: Empathetic; Compassionate; "A" Type; Forever Student; Traveler; Situational Humorist; Dog Lover

I have worked in multiple dental offices before building Care Endodontics. Care and positive dentistry are my branding message. I have six root canals and acknowledge how my patients feel in the dental setting. Being an endodontist allows interaction with all cultures and professionals. I learn from my patients. I believe that interacting with patients builds confidence and better treatment experience.

I'm in a relationship with Lincoln, my childhood sweetheart. We reconnected after 20 years on Facebook in 2009. We are dog lovers; I have two English Bulldogs and Lincoln a Viszla. I love personal growth and have embraced many interests: travel, art, reading, photography, and attempted Cake decorating. I try to paint – Modern Kindergarten Abstract, as I refer to it. I love a good sense of humor, and when I commit to a project, I explore every detail – like my career. My latest project is genealogy, and I have traced my family back to 1675.
