I enjoy the wide range of services and care that General dentistry allows me to provide to my patients. I strive to bring highest quality dental service in a gentle and caring manner to each of my patients.

Away from the practice, I am an avid reader and love tending to my garden. I also enjoy outdoor activities especially biking, hiking and traveling with my husband and children.


“Just wanted to drop a note and say thanks…3 years ago today you guys changed my life forever. You granted me the one wish I had…a new smile. I had always had a rotten, ugly smile, and through patience, perseverance, and state help, we fought through and got me the smile I can flash everywhere. You guys have been wonderful throughout my 3 + years working with you, and I cannot thank you enough. You have worked with me through everything; repairs, adjustments, warranty work; and through it all have been accommodating and more than willing to help me out! I tell everyone I know that needs a dentist about your clinic, and I know that several have come your way and they say the same thing. Keep up the great work that you do. Thank you for making such a huge impact on my confidence and my ability to make my life amazing. I am truly grateful that I chose Family and Cosmetic Gentle Dentistry in New Hope, and I look forward to many more days of working with you all. You’re stuck with me now! :)”
