Dentistry is a profession that has long played an important role in my family. I knew that I wanted a career where I could help care for people, and I found my calling quickly growing up with multiple family members who were dentists. As a fourth-generation dentist, I am excited to think back on how much has changed and improved in dentistry since my great-grandfather was practicing more than 100 years ago!
It was my privilege to start my career by serving as a dentist in the US Army, providing the highest quality of dental care to our nation’s soldiers. Now, I am more than excited to bring that same level of care to our patients at Fremont Dental Group. I truly enjoy connecting with patients and getting to know them, then working with them to achieve a healthy, pain-free, and beautiful smile. I never take for granted that I am given the opportunity to improve lives by improving smiles.
Education and Continuing Education
I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Following graduation, I was accepted into the US Army Health Professions Scholarship Program and earned my DDS at Creighton University School of Dentistry.
Lifelong learning is something that I feel is a crucial aspect in the ability to provide the highest quality of care to my patients. Therefore, I regularly attend courses that cover a variety of dental topics. Dentistry is fun because it is an ever-changing profession. I want to be sure I am always using the best techniques and technology available when caring for my patients.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Mitchell, South Dakota. After spending four years stationed at Ft. Riley in Kansas, we are excited to be closer to family and make our home here in Nebraska. My husband, Matt, and I have two beautiful children who keep our days full and our hearts fuller. Miles is five and Nora is three. Our kids are particularly excited to be able to frequently visit the Henry Doorly Zoo! When I find free time, I like playing volleyball, spending time outdoors and enjoying time with my kids, reading or playing at the park.
