Getting to know your provider

  • Why did you choose your profession?

    I made the decision to become a dentist before I even started kindergarten! No one in my family is a dentist, but it’s the only job I’ve ever wanted and I’m lucky to have found my passion so early in life. As a pediatric dentist, I have the unique role of working with children every 6 months as they grow from infancy through adolescence. If I can send your child off to college without a cavity then I have done my job.

  • Why do you work at NOAH?

    My undergraduate degree is in Public Health and NOAH allows me the opportunity to incorporate both my love of dentistry with my need to serve our community. As a pediatric dentist, I am specially trained to work with vulnerable populations and special needs patients. Working with NOAH allows me to provide integrative medicine with our teams in medical, behavioral health and nutrition to provide a complete approach to overall wellness.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    I still maintain my standing as a first responder with the New York City Medical Reserve Corps. We are a group of medically trained professionals established in response to the events of 9/11. I am on faculty for the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health as well as the pediatric dental residents from NYU-Langone who train here in Arizona. In my free time, I enjoy running and participating in community events. I have one son with Autism.

What the community is saying …

I would just like to say they work really well with the kids, and they know how to interact with them and the place is very nice and clean. They got you in a timely manner and get you out and I just really love this place and I were recommended for it any wants to go there.

This has been the most amazing dental visit we have ever had with Leo. All the staff was incredibly patient with him and made him comfortable. We have had very awful experiences before in other dental clinics and I am so happy to have found you guys.
