I am originally from Glencoe, a town in western Minnesota . After completing my undergraduate studies at the College of St. Benedict, I decided to escape the Minnesota winters. I moved to Glendale, AZ., where I attended Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine. After completing dental school I spent some time practicing general dentistry in Phoenix, AZ. The love I have for my family and friends ultimately brought me back home to Minnesota. I couldn’t be more excited to be back in Minnesota and all the “nice” things it has to offer!
Providing patients with the most current dental research is of utmost importance. Dentistry, like many fields of medicine, is constantly changing. I spend numerous hours reading and taking continuing education classes to ensure I am using the best products, materials and the most up to date technology. I am an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Minnesota Dental Association and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.

I am passionate about providing oral health care for patients in a comfortable environment. My enthusiasm for dentistry allows me to inform and educate my patients about treatment possibilities. I am truly grateful that I get to share my knowledge and learn something new from my patients every day.
Outside the Office
When I am not practicing dentistry, I enjoy playing piano, reading and spending time with friends and family. I am very passionate about the outdoors and love to hike, fish, camp, bike, and play golf.
