As a dentist, I am most passionate about making my patients feel comfortable during their visits. I strive to allay any fears they have, and help them realize that coming to my practice is actually a pleasant experience. My team and I are committed to ensuring that every visit is painless and stress-free.
I am also passionate about the artistic aspect of dentistry. It is a joy to create smiles that transform people’s lives. Restoring function so people can comfortably enjoy their food and at the same time have a beautiful smile, is very rewarding.
My Team and Our Practice
My team members are the bedrock of the practice. We share the same philosophy of caring for patients like family. It is important to every one of us that our patients are satisfied with the treatment they receive. We’ve created a wonderful dental practice that offers great dentistry and outstanding customer service in a warm and relaxed atmosphere.
Education and Continuing Education
- Bachelor of Science – George Washington University
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – New York University College of Dentistry
- Hospital residency – Montefiore Medical Center
I enjoy expanding my skills as a dentist and take pride in staying up to date. Dentistry is a constantly evolving field, and I stay current with the latest techniques and materials so I can provide patients with the best care available.
I complete many continuing education courses through the New York County Dental Society. I also attend the Greater New York Dental Meeting every year, which is the largest dental convention in the country.
Beyond the Office
I grew up in Brighton, England and moved to the U.S. to complete my college and post-graduate education. For the better part of three decades, I’ve lived here in Manhattan with my family. My husband, who’s from the New York area, was a writer and editor for a large international news magazine. He currently works as a composer and songwriter. I have two children: a daughter who loves the performing arts and a son who says he wants to follow in my footsteps ... at least for now.
I tend to be a workaholic, but in my spare time I try to hit the gym. I enjoy hiking in the area and like skiing, so long as I’m well-dressed for it! When time allows, I enjoy playing tennis, too. I also read a lot: mainly dental journals!
Personally, I am passionate about my family life. I make sure my children are striving to learn every day and become the best people they can be.
