I offer a wealth of knowledge and more than 26 years of dental experience to my patients and colleagues. As a Missoula, Montana native, I have a passion for fishing, skiing, canoeing, and family kayaking. I also recently took up scuba diving with my son, Zach, and enjoy racquetball in the winter and golf with the family in the summer. Among my golf friends, I am known for my “high, soft-landing ball” (please note I did not mention the words “straight” or “long”!).
Education and Continuing Education
I am an avid University of Washington academic and sports fan; Go Huskies! I also admit that my daughter, Lindsay, is a graduated Cougar. I attended the University of Montana with a major in Microbiology and a minor in Chemistry and graduated in 1981. I then attended the University of Washington School of Dentistry, graduating with honors in 1986.
I have a passion and dedication for dentistry and thoroughly enjoy my profession. I regularly attend continuing education courses at the University of Washington in order to stay in the forefront of research and provide patients with up-to-date cosmetic and restorative dental care.
Professional memberships in the following organizations also provide opportunities for continuing education:
- American Dental Association
- Washington State Dental Association
- American Academy of General Dentistry
- King County Dental Society
I have been truly blessed, both personally and professionally. I always look forward to tomorrow with our friendly staff and patients. Along with our well-trained staff, I look forward to helping you achieve a beautiful smile!
