An accomplished PA & TX licensed dentist with 20+ years experience in private dental practice. I am skilled in a variety of areas of general dentistry, understanding the business side of dental practice, and oral healthcare for individuals with special needs and disabilities. Since transitioning to academia and public health I enjoy the field of dentistry more than ever. I am able to practice dentistry and teach a new generation in a variety of areas. My MPH expanded my horizons further, to be able to reach out to populations in great need of oral health. I enjoy bringing my experience and training to my students and people with special needs, the elderly, and vulnerable members of society.
