Confident, Beautiful Smiles
I enjoy helping each of my patients achieve a healthy and beautiful smile they will share with confidence for a lifetime.
As an orthodontist, I have the pleasure of meeting and working with wonderful families. Each patient is important to me. I like getting to know them on a personal level, enjoying their special talents, gifts, joys, and stories. Because orthodontic care usually takes several years, and I see patients about once a month, I really learn who they are. Sharing in their adventures, achievements, and life changes is an amazing benefit of being an orthodontist.
My goal is to provide each patient and the family with the highest quality of treatment experience. Not only do I want to help them achieve their most incredible smile, I want them to enjoy everything about the process. My team and I focus on a patient’s comfort: encouraging and supporting them as they make this positive change in their life.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Arts in chemistry – Washington & Jefferson College
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine
- Certificate in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics – Saint Barnabas
Each year I complete many continuing education courses. Orthodontics is a changing specialty, with new techniques, materials, and technology. I’m always looking to add to my clinical skills and knowledge. Continuing education allows me to learn from leading researchers and orthodontists around the country, and bring that information back to my patients. I strongly feel my team and I owe it to our profession and our patients to improve our knowledge constantly. This improves my patients’ treatment, care experience, and their finished smiles.

I support and volunteer with the Colorado Orthodontic Foundation at the Commerce City clinic. I also donate to local PTAs and support our local schools and their activities. I’m a member of the Golden Chamber of Commerce, too.
A native of Pittsburgh, I currently reside in Arvada with my husband Paul, and daughters Sydney and Charley. Our family loves our time together. In the winter you’ll find us on the slopes. We all love skiing and doing it together. We also enjoy traveling and love Disneyland!
