I am dedicated to excellence in dentistry and I enjoy enhancing people’s lives. I am a perfectionist through and through. I find dentistry to be a wonderful blend of science and art, which allows me to combine all of my strengths. But it is the people who make this a great profession for me, with an exceptional team and a terrific family of patients.
I believe that a smile is the window to a person’s self-esteem. Whether it is a whole new smile, a tweak to their existing smile, or simply taking pride in the health of their mouth, it is very rewarding to assist our patients and see the change in them, both physically and emotionally, as they journey toward optimal oral health.
Education and Experience
- Undergraduate degree – Brandeis University
- Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Tufts University School of Dental Medicine
- Harvard-wide – General practice residency
It is important to me to offer the latest, safest, and most efficient techniques and technology for our patients. I am involved in a Dr. Frank Spear Study Club and meet every month with a select group of local general dentists and specialists. Additionally, I have been on the Master’s track with the Pride Institute. I am constantly striving to learn more each and every day.
Prior to buying my practice in 2006, I was a general dental practice residency coordinator at the Massachusetts General Hospital as part of the Harvard-wide GPR. Since that time, I have been very committed to advanced education. Rather than teach residents and students at this point, I focus on teaching myself, my team, and our family of patients. As a team, we do monthly literature reviews and are committed to offering the best for our patients.
In the Dental Community
I am very involved in the Massachusetts Dental Society as the chair of the standing committee for women’s leadership in dentistry, and the program co-chair for the Yankee Dental Congress. I often volunteer my services to provide dentistry to under-served populations via a mobile dental van provided by the Massachusetts Dental Society.
Outside the Office
Originally from central New Jersey, I have lived in Hopkinton for the past 13 years. I love to spend time with my children, Lexi and Andrew. When I have free time I enjoy yoga, snow skiing, and playing on the Jersey Shore.
