Meet our Team - Pediatric Dentistry in San Diego
I previously lived in Virginia for 10 years and have moved all over the country. I'm glad to call San Diego home. I started my dental career with Lil’ Smiles in 2011 and enjoy working up front helping parents with their children’s appointments, dental insurance, and all the other ‘ behind the scenes’ necessities. My goal is to have your experience at Lil’ Smiles be as smooth as possible - from the first phone call to schedule a check-up to checking out afterward. I really enjoy working with children & their families. In my spare time, I like going to the beach, playing tennis, traveling, and spending time with my family & friends.
I started my career as a Registered Dental Assistant at Lil’ Smiles in 2012, and really enjoy working in the pediatric dental field. From a young age I was taught the importance of taking care of my teeth and oral health. I find a lot of satisfaction in being able to pass on that same knowledge to other kids, so that they can learn how to take care of their teeth and see the benefits of good diet and oral hygiene. I am a native to San Diego and love being outdoors in this beautiful city. I'm also bilingual in French, and have had the opportunity to visit many wonderful places in the world where French is spoken.
I myself experienced many different dental procedures as a child, so I know the gentle touch required in order for a child to have a positive dental experience . Because of that, I became very interested in working in the dental field. I received my Registered Dental Assistant license in 2011, where I started my career at Lil’ Smiles. Specializing in Pediatric Dentistry has been a unique and fulfilling experience. I find it rewarding helping our youngest patient overcome any fears or anxieties about the dental visit. I find great satisfaction seeing them walk away care-free and happy! When I'm not at work I enjoy traveling, nature, and learning languages.
I have 30 years of experience as an office manager. I take pride in building lasting relationships and being able to help parents with their children’s appointments, dental insurance, and financial options. My husband is a dental hygienist and we have 2 children and 9 grandchildren. I enjoy spending time with them as well as my 2 dogs, Augie & Rory.
