My ultimate career objective is to connect with others through healthcare with empathy, professionalism, and warmth. I am a people junkie; I love hearing stories about YOUR life. I want to be someone who can turn your perspective of a "bad dental experience" into something that feels comfortable and genuine. I want to break down the silos that clinicians and patients exist in; I approach every patient, every time, with the same mentality of what would I recommend if this was my sister, my brother, my mom, my dad sitting before me.
I am easy going, easy to talk to and am easily excitable. I have an endless curiosity of those around me. I stay active in the dental community by taking CE, engaging in journal clubs, and keeping up with new technology updates. I am interested in providing the highest level of care to my patients. I am an advocate for my patients and want make my patients to be seen and heard. Having had a GPR residency at a level one trauma center, I stand apart from other clinicians in my experience in dealing with both the normal and also, the unusual. I work extremely well with others; from working amongst 9 other co-residents to working inter-professionally with other medical doctors and clinicians to assistants, I am always willing to go the extra mile for my patients alongside my community members.
I pride myself in being able to connect with anyone. If we focus more on the things that separate us from one another, we can forget about the beauty that exists in our similarities. Every patient, every time. That is my goal when I start my day and when I sit down with each patient. Being a dentist and providing healthcare is an honor and something I feel incredibly grateful for every day. I value providing dental work to all walks of life; from the young to old, I find a way to make those differences fade to the background!
