I love a great smile. It is the first thing I notice when I meet someone. There is no greater gift that I could give than a healthy, happy, confident smile. For me, dentistry allows me to do just that. It’s the perfect blend of science, art, and happiness. It has given me a deeply personal way to connect with and help others.My dental journey has included my undergraduate education at the University of Rochester, dental school at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and a post-graduate residency at the AEGD at Boston University. My husband Brandon and I lived in North Carolina for two years while he completed his MBA, and then we moved back to my home state of Massachusetts where we settled in Hanover.Over the years, Brandon’s and my family has grown to include our three daughters Mila, Maren and Macyn, and our dog Hunter. There is a real sense of energy, spunk and fun in our home and never a dull moment as we spend our spare time on soccer and softball fields, basketball courts, and with a close-knit group of friends. We adore the South Shore and truly enjoy the communities we are lucky to be a part of.Dentistry has enabled us to be a part of the communities of Hanson, Cohasset, Abington and Weymouth. We are excited to continue to spread our “purple” presence across the South Shore as we grow our practices.As our practice network has grown, I have had the opportunity to focus on the clinical aspects of dentistry that I hold close to my heart and continue to shape and maintain my vision for our dental offices and teams. Together, we are navigating the ever-changing dental landscape with the goals of providing the best care on the South Shore, staying at the cutting edge of dental technology and innovation and providing a great place for our teams to provide care.I love being a dentist and I appreciate the unique qualities and situations of everyone that enters our office. Dentistry is a team effort and we work very hard to make sure that every patient’s experience is the best it can be. I enjoy seeing all of our patients and look forward to meeting the new ones. Come be a part of our dental family and let us make you smile!Education
