I’m from Lafayette, LA, and am a Cajun girl to my core. I moved to Florida and attended the University of Florida for my Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology where I graduated Summa Cum Laude. I remained at UF and as part of the Gator Nation for my dental degree. I feel it is essential to stay at the forefront of my field, by participating in continuing dental education I am able to provide my patients with the best care using the most advanced techniques available. I firmly believe a great doctor never stops learning!
I love the personal side of dentistry. I love helping people overcome their fears of dental care and using my gift of communication to make a patient comfortable. Most of the time I can even have them laughing during procedures that many people fear. I truly love my profession and my patients, so I try to have fun with them and my team.
My job is more than a job to me, it is a passion. I feel that through the gifts and talents I have been given, I can change people’s smiles and in turn change their life. I can make a person who is terrified relax and laugh, and I can make the first visit experience for children a positive, fun-filled one.
IN THE COMMUNITY
Being active in the community is important to me because it is the community that has allowed me to become the thriving practitioner I am. Giving back is the least I can do. My children are involved with various community sports and I donate a lot of time to those activities. I help support various nonprofit charities with our office. I also donate a lot of time to various clinics and organizations in the local area.
My husband Todd and I have been married for 20 years. He’s an active duty member of the military. I have two children, Max and Bailey, who attend local high schools and are very involved in football and softball. The baby of our family is our Frenchie, named Mileaux. When I’m not working or at the sports fields with my children, I’m consumed with all things DISNEY: D
