My professional interests include restorations, crown and bridge, implant restorations, extractions, and removable appliances. I am particularly interested in anterior esthetic cases.
The profession allows you to help people within the community in such an impactful way – some examples include relieving patient pain/discomfort and improving chewing function with either implant crowns, bridges or removable appliances. To some, simply fixing a small chip on a front tooth can improve self-esteem. The profession also requires you to know the correlation between oral health and systemic anatomy/physiology along with hands-on application. All of which I really enjoy.
I knew I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare during college, so I began exploring dentistry my second year. My first exposure was through shadowing Dr. Reza Ardalan, who is a pediatric dentist and I loved the experience. From there, I continued to volunteer as an assistant for UF’s College of Dentistry during my time at the University of Florida and volunteered at a dental clinic that served primarily underserved people in Boynton Beach on breaks. It was really rewarding and while volunteering, I could see myself really enjoying being a dentist.
I like to spend my free time relaxing with family and friends and being in the outdoors. Before the pandemic, I enjoyed traveling and going to concerts.
I genuinely care about the people I serve and am empathetic toward their needs. I have a strong work ethic with much energy and dedication to continue learning within the field of dentistry. Striving for excellent patient care is and will continue to be my life’s professional goal.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation corrects imperfections in bite position and enhances the appearance of the smile. Using advanced technology, the dentist measures the jaw’s muscle function in both stressed and relaxed positions by running computerized scans.
A dental extraction is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Available at all offices, except for Tequesta.
