Meet Our Doctor
I am a true Oregonian, born and raised. I have made Coos Bay my home for over 25 years and I love it here!
I have been involved in dentistry most of my life starting as a dental assistant for my father at age 13. I decided at that time I would pursue a career as a dental hygienist. I attended Pacific University, Portland State University and the Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU).
While in the Dental Hygiene program at OHSU, my professors encouraged me to go on to dental school and I’m glad I did! After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Dental Hygiene, I went on to graduate with honors with a Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from OHSU in 1985.
I started my dental practice in Coos Bay in 1988. I have been truly blessed with the amazing people I work with and all the wonderful patients we have the privilege to care for. I absolutely love my profession and am passionate about what I do. I have dedicated my professional career to providing my patients with the best dentistry available and doing so with a gentle touch and the utmost care and compassion.
I am continually upgrading my skills, training, and knowledge of the most recent approaches in cosmetic, restorative, and preventive dentistry. I have both the experience and the expertise to provide you and your family with the best dentistry has to offer. I continually strive to be the best dentist’s the Oregon coast has to offer.
When I’m not doing dentistry, I love spending time with my beautiful daughter Desiree. I enjoy making glass beads, gardening, sailing, scuba diving, fishing, hiking, music, reading, art projects, traveling and hanging out at the lake, the river or the beach.
