Pediatric and Adolescent Dentistry logo

I studied dentistry at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry and spent a year practicing Hospital Dentistry in Chicago where I finished a General Practice Residency. I returned to Minnesota and completed a Pediatric Dentistry Residency in my home state. Before dental school, I graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College and looked forward to returning to Southern Minnesota. I am a Board Certified Diplomate with the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

I chose pediatric dentistry because working with kids and patients with special health care needs is fun and rewarding. Dental caries, or cavities, is the most common chronic disease of childhood and adolescence. I want to help decrease the problems that come with cavities and dental pain and infections through education, prevention and treatment. Parents, children and the dental team all work together to develop proper hygiene and care that will last a lifetime.
