In Doc’s presence, you immediately notice her attention to you, as if nothing else is going on around her. The backdrop of her achievements and awards hanging on the wall of the hallway backs the confidence you sense from her genuine attention. Her attention to detail in her patient care plans stems in part from her extensive training and experience, yet remains tempered by her compassion. She advocates for oral health with all of her patients, helping to clear disease and disrepair to make way for healthy smiles. Above all, she loves to spend time with her patients and initiate a friendship that develops with mutual trust over time.
