Education and Continuing Education

I am so lucky to have found a career in which I can dedicate my professional life to enhancing the smiles and lives of others. Orthodontics transformed my life. The visible change of my smile, wrought by wearing braces, allowed my inner personality to outwardly shine. I continue to hold to the idea that dentistry, especially orthodontics, can be transformative for people of all ages. I enjoy talking, laughing, and sharing stories with my patients. It is my goal to make our office, and the people in it, achieve a smile they love and have fun in the process.

A New York Native

It is very exciting for me to be returning to New York, where I grew up just north of Manhattan in Rockland County. I graduated from Smith College, Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture and Chemistry. At SUNY University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine, I completed my DDS degree with a minor in pediatric dentistry, graduating Cum Laude with Thesis Honors, and received several distinctions for academic achievement. My research on self-report of waking-state oral parafunctional behaviors was published in the Journal of Oral Facial Pain and Headache in 2016.

I continued at SUNY University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine for my orthodontics residency, where I was president of my class and earned a postgraduate Certificate of Advanced Study in Orthodontics and a Masters of Science in Orthodontics for my graduate research.

Outside the Office

When I am not focusing on teeth, I enjoy trying new recipes, foods and restaurants, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, and traveling. At home, I am a wife to my wonderful husband (who also happens to be an orthodontist!), and the mom to our two hilarious cats, Oscar and Pearl. I try to have one new adventure each week to explore some place or something new, whether it is big or small! Professionally, I am a board-certified Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and an active member of several orthodontic associations, including the American Association of Orthodontics. I look forward to connecting with you and your loved ones in our office!
