I was born in Mansfield, Ohio, and raised in the countryside north of the city. As a child, I always gravitated to hobbies that involved creativity, attention to detail, and hand skills. I could often be found performing slight-of-hand magic, playing guitar, and woodworking.
In high school, I loved science and chemistry and decided chemistry would be my major at Miami University. It only took a week of college for me to realize that I needed something artistic to be happy. A friend in my dorm talked about becoming a dentist. That’s when it clicked — a career that entails both art and science! Dentistry became my destiny. I graduated from The Ohio State University College of Dentistry in 2006.
My Favorite thing about dentistry is…
I grew up in Dublin, Ohio. As a child, the person I admired most was my dad. He was a dentist and I was impressed by the way he served his patients. He took his time to really get to know them and built such wonderful relationships that lasted throughout his career.
I saw how his patients trusted him. I wanted to be able to serve people this way too. Lucky for me, I was pretty good at science and art in high school. Two perfect combinations for becoming a dentist!

At Mount Vernon Dental, our focus is on our patient’s optimal oral health in conjunction with their overall health. This is often referred to as the oral-systemic connection.
There have been numerous studies on the oral-systemic connection showing links between gum disease and other diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, dementia, rheumatoid arthritis, some pregnancy complications, and more. Your mouth is a gateway for bacteria to enter the rest of your body. Keeping your mouth clean and free from bad bacteria is necessary to help maintain your optimum overall health.
