I am proud to be a part of this great team. It is such an honor for me to carry on the tradition of providing the Pensacola and surrounding community with beautiful smiles. I find great joy in making orthodontics an enjoyable experience for each of my patients, and with six children of my own, I love getting to know their families. At our practice, we strive to serve our patients by offering the most innovative treatments and technologies and ensuring that each family feels appreciated and comfortable.

Carrying on a family tradition... with a twist

I was literally born into Dentistry. My dad is a former family dentist and my mom was a dental hygienist. I was actually born while my mom was taking the Florida boards for dental hygiene. I always felt dentistry was an ideal job for me – getting to talk with people of all ages all day long, helping them have a smile they love to show off. The only thing better is being an orthodontist. I get to straighten teeth and boost self-esteem all day. Nothing makes me smile more than watching my patients' faces light up when they see just how fun braces can be.

I have been a part of the Pensacola community since 1981, so my patients are my friends and neighbors. I can't think of a better way to spend my time than helping improve the community for my family, friends, and neighbors. I love being able to give my patients the latest treatments. With my extensive involvement in professional associations, my patients can rest assured they'll always get the most up-to-date, comfortable care.
