My highest goal professionally is to provide the most effective, efficient and comfortable treatments for my patients. By learning about the latest orthodontic treatments and technology, I am able to ensure that my patients will always receive the best care available.
As a part of my continuing education, I am a member of the Hinman Dental Society, which holds numerous seminars as well as a large annual meeting in Atlanta. I also participate in Dawson Academy courses and attend yearly conferences in orthodontics and other dental specialties. By studying the latest orthodontic research and proven methods, I know my patients will attain beautiful, healthy smiles that last a lifetime.

In the Practice
My patients come to me because they want a beautiful new smile. I enjoy getting to know each patient personally, and make sure they also get a wonderful orthodontic experience. After all, getting a new smile should be enjoyable! Of course, the best part of what I do is seeing the final results, and how happy my patients are. Not only does their appearance improve, but they are often much more comfortable than before treatment, and their teeth are much easier to clean. Lives change in our office every day, and I'm proud of what I do for our patients.
Braces are not just for kids and teens, and I love working with people of all ages. Everyone benefits differently from his or her orthodontic experience, and personally knowing each patient and how orthodontic treatment affects their lives is my greatest reward. Excellent patient care is the center of our daily focus, and my team and I love what we do!
Family and Community
I grew up in Covington, and love serving the people of my hometown. My husband, Allen, and I have three wonderful sons named Brody, Harrison, and Parker. When I am not in the office, you can find me spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, or exercising. I also travel weekly to the Children's Hospital of Atlanta, where I work in the Craniofacial Clinic providing orthodontic care to patients with craniofacial anomalies.
