Attentive, Personalized Orthodontic Care
As an orthodontist, I enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds, hearing their stories, and being part of their journey to becoming their best self. Orthodontic treatment not only creates a beautiful smile but also a great foundation for a healthy and functional smile. Having an attractive smile helps patients be more aware of their overall health and increases their confidence.
I strive to create a positive and memorable experience for every patient, like the one I experienced when I had orthodontic treatment. I decided to become an orthodontist the day my own braces were placed. Even then, I appreciated the combination of art and science, and how the process created lasting changes for patients.
I love seeing my patients on a regular basis and seeing the progress in their treatment, as well as watching each person become more confident. Because of my commitment to providing the highest level of care, I personally see each patient at every visit. This ensures I know exactly how things are progressing and am able to update the patient and their parent.

I grew up in Hockessin, DE, about 30 minutes from the office. Now I live in Kennett Square with my husband and our two children. When I’m not working, I’m with my family.
