It is a privilege to be part of this profession, and that comes with great responsibility to treat my patients with kindness and respect to the best of my abilities. Our practice has worked hard to make visits fun, convenient, and affordable.
I have learned so much from my patients, and take great satisfaction in seeing so many of “our smiles” in the community. It is a blessing to be able to be such a positive part of our patients’ lives, and it is very enjoyable to follow where their lives lead them.
Education and Experience
- Undergraduate degree – Juniata College

As an orthodontist, my dedication to better the lives of young people goes well beyond the day-to-day duties of our orthodontic practice. My commitment to my patients includes continual post-doctoral training to add to my expertise. Much of my current continuing education has focused on technology and how we can make orthodontics easier, more efficient, and cost-effective for our patients.
