Get to know your Doctor
How did you get started in dentistry?
In the 11th grade I worked as a dental assistant for a great dentist in Hollywood, Florida. Then I went to college at Miami Dade for dental hygiene and worked for several years.
What made you decide to become a dentist?
I loved dentistry and really wanted to keep going. A good friend urged me to go to dental school. It's the best decision I ever made.
What's next for you?
Because dentistry evolves, techniques and products are constantly changing, I take courses continually. I recently became faculty with the Spears Institute. This is a huge honor.
What do you like the most about what you do?
Getting to know my patients. They become like friends. An appointment is like a visit with a friend. I also like to improve how people feel about their smile. To help someone feel good about their smile, about their self, is very gratifying.
