What I enjoy most about general dentistry are the relationships I develop with my patients while delivering personalized comprehensive treatment. I am bilingual, so welcome all Spanish speaking patients as well. I have a thirst to continue learning and challenging myself so I can provide my patients with the most ideal treatment options based on their desires and needs. With my vast training in multiple fields of dentistry such as restorative, prosthodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, implantology and sleep medicine at the Minneapolis VA, I have come to love the many facets of multi-disciplinary dentistry.

Even though I’m new to Minneapolis I have enthusiastically adopted the Vikings, Twins and Gophers as my own. Originally from South Florida I’m not only a spectator but enjoy participating in all types of outdoor activities. I also enjoying going on weekend getaways with friends and trying out the local microbrews and cuisine. I look forward to growing as a dental professional in the innovative culture at Park Dental in St. Louis Park.


The dental care you deserve is waiting for you at a nearby Park Dental.

I decided to give this dentist another try. After the first visit I felt she was rushed and didn't really care about what I had to say. The second time was the same thing. She did my oral exam STANDING UP which I didn't appreciate. Said I had no cavities but I did have perio surgery on a tooth and she didn't even take another PA to see how it was doing. I would prefer not to see her again.

I never spoke with the Dr. A first in my experience, the Dr didn't introduce herself to me, discuss the exam or how the tx proceeded. My daughter indicated that she didn't discuss things with her either.
