I am one of the patient care coordinators and my job is to make sure you have a great dental experience from start to finish. Part of that involves making sure patients are well informed regarding their dental treatment and insurance. I chose Pediatrics because I love kids. Dentistry, in general, has always fascinated me especially with all the new advances they are making every day! I enjoy running, reading and spending time with my husband and my kids.
