I am very blessed to work in a field that helps me to make a positive difference in the lives of the people I meet. I truly enjoy going to work every day and meeting so many different, unique people who all have something special to share. It is wonderful to make patients feel like theyre a part of our family and see the joy on their faces when they see their new smile.
I am an active community member of New Heights of NW Arkansas and also participate in Lifesource, Bethany Christian Services, and Smile for a Lifetime.I am also involved in our local church, singing in the praise band.
I took my undergraduate degree in Oklahoma State University, receiving my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I then completed four years of dental school at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. I completed a one year general practice residency at the Childrens Hospital in Oklahoma City, OK. Ultimately, I received my Master of Science degree in Orthodontics after three years of study at the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
I had the honor of having been published in the American Journal of Orthodontics and Identifiably Orthopedics and have spoken nationally about the use of SureSmile. I am an active member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Arkansas State Dental Association, and the Northwest Arkansas Dental Association.
Community involvement is very important to us. Our patients have chosen us as their orthodontic provider and we are honored to give back to them. We support several local charities, sports teams, and extracurricular activities that our patients are involved in. We also are a part of a nonprofit organization called Smile for a Lifetime. Through this program we can offer complimentary orthodontic treatment to children that wouldnt be able to receive it by any other means.
