Having the opportunity to serve the dental needs of Central Alabama and the surrounding areas is truly a blessing. I enjoy spending time with my patients and using the gifts that I’ve been given to take care of them. While I have a heart for both adult and pediatric patients, children bring a unique spark with them wherever they go and have a special place in my heart. I treat each one of my patients the way I would want my own children to be treated. I feel honored to have the opportunity to make an impact on a child’s life, whether big or small, and to be able to show them love during what can be a scary situation.
I am a West Tennessee native and was born and raised in Jackson, TN. But the state of Alabama has had a place in my heart for a long time. I attended Auburn University (War Eagle!) where I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biomedical Sciences. I then headed back to Tennessee and received my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis, TN in 2013. I have many years of experience providing pediatric and general dentistry care. I am also certified by the American Academy of Facial Esthetics to administer Botulinum toxin (Botox), dermal fillers and PDO smooth threads for esthetic purposes and botulinum toxin for TMJ and orofacial pain.
I now live in Tuscaloosa, AL with my husband, Eric, and our 3 energetic kids. When I am not at work taking care of patients, I am keeping up with Charlie, Caecilia, and Forrest. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing tennis, going to the lake, snow skiing, golfing, and playing with our dog, Pancake.
