I believe that every smile is a work of art; every client is a living masterpiece and every smile of satisfaction is priceless. If I can help a client visualize what their dental health could be, and help them get there, then I know I am doing my job to the best of my ability. I care because.... I chose to make a difference in people's lives through honesty, empathy and kindness. It's a duty, an obligation and an honor. I believe in - you only treat what you see, you only see what you know.

I attended University of Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine for my DMD. After finishing my dental training, I moved to the North Bay seven years ago. I am currently working on a fellowship with the Academy of General Dentistry, focusing continued education on esthetics and problem solving in complex cases. My favorite part of dentistry is restoring someone's experience of the dentist. If they have had poor experiences in the past, I want to show them how it can be an easy, gentle experience. ...Read More

I care and love dental hygiene because it's very gratifying. I care because I enjoy educating my patients on what they are able to do better if needed. Ask me if I care, of course I care or I wouldn't be here with a smile on my face always trying to help my patients improve their oral health care!

I care because even though I may only see some patients twice a year, they still become part of the Permalla Dental Care family and I feel honored to be a small part of their lives.

I care because our teeth are vital to us in our daily lives. To me, it doesn’t matter if you are 6 years old or 86 years old, every single patient I work with will receive the same level of care I would give if it were my own family member in the chair. That same level of commitment holds true no matter if your teeth are in great shape or need major work. My reward is your smile when you leave our office after an appointment. ASK IF I CARE…darn right I do! After all, a smile is the best lookin...Read More

I care because I believe in looking out for each other. What better way to do that than to work as a team to assist patients every step of the way to a healthy smile. Sharing every bit of information that we as a dental office can provide to help them make an educated decision. Plus, If I don’t care then who will.

Why I care... As an anxious person myself, I feel being in the medical field allows me to understand the spiked anxiety levels that can coincide with dental appointments. If there is anything I can do to ease your mind, let you know everything is going to be ok, I feel I have done my job at the end of the day. It is rewarding for me to be able to see our patients smile while walking out our door after an appointment. In full spectrum, knowing I am working with a team I trust, our patients are in...Read More
