Due to an injury as a toddler, I spent a significant amount of time in the dental chair. After my teeth were restored, I gained self-confidence and found myself wanting to smile all the time. I quickly realized the impact a dentist can make, and that I wanted to be able to provide this service for someone else one day. As a dentist, I strive to make sure every patient is comfortable in the chair. I enjoy listening to my patients’ priorities and educating patients on dental health. I assure patients have a thorough understanding of their treatment and enjoy helping patients reach their goals.
I graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a degree in Nutrition Science and Biochemistry. I then attended the University of Nebraska Medical Center to earn my Doctorate of Dental Surgery.
Education and Continuing Education
I am committed to providing the latest advances in dental treatment to my patients. I have attended several dental conferences and am always seeking out continuing education courses. Most recently, I have done advanced training in Invisalign, pediatric dentistry, and esthetic treatment planning. Recently, my research on whitening products was published in the journal “Operative Dentistry.” In addition, I am a member of the American Dental Association, Nebraska Dental Association, and Omaha District Dental Society.
In the Community
As a Fremont native, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to provide dentistry at Fremont Dental Group! I have always been an active member of my community and have a long list of community service projects. These community service projects include numerous hours educating elementary school students about their dental health and a dental mission trip to Jamaica. In addition, I am a member of the Omaha Junior League where I volunteer at various events around the city of Omaha.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Tim, and our families. My husband and I also enjoy snow skiing, golfing, going to Husker games, and traveling. When at home, I am often designing shirts or home decor on my Cricut Machine.
