I am thankful to be a dentist. It is immensely rewarding to know that I am doing what God lead me to do: I knew, when I was eight years old, this was my calling. It is a bonus that I work alongside my husband each day, and that we get to see our patients grow and mature into wonderful young adults!
Born and raised in Selma, I am happy to be part of our community. I love serving our patients and their families, and am honored to spend time with each. I love to lead a patient from dental fear to a place of comfort and peace through the visit. That is true of their parents, as well: everyone at our practice is responsive to a family’s desires and concerns, and works to set them at ease.
When a nervous child finishes a visit with a big smile, and tells us they liked being here, I am thrilled. I want children to always feel safe, heard, and valued – and to know we love them as if they were our own.
Becoming a dentist is what I was called to do. I grew up in a dental family and am a third generation dentist!
I graduated from Auburn University with a Bachelor degree in Biomedical Science. I then attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry, where I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
Dentistry is an exciting, ever-changing field, with new technology and techniques constantly being researched, developed, and integrated into patient care. Staying abreast of the latest innovations, and incorporating the best into our practice, allows me to continue providing the best treatment and results for our patients.
I am an active member of the:
- American Dental Association
- Alabama Dental Association
- Selma Dental Study Club
Through these organizations, I am able to learn from the leading dental practitioners and researchers, as well as my peers and specialists.
Beyond the Practice
I appreciate living in and raising our children in my hometown. Dr. James Osborn, my husband, and I have three energetic sons – Lane, Holden, and Luke – as well as a dog, Amos (yes, I am in the minority!) who keep us busy.
Being with my family is my greatest passion. I also enjoy running, reading, and baking. We love our church, Blue Jean, in Selma, and love to travel and experience God’s creation in exploring new places, too.
