I grew up in Flower Mound and graduated from Lewisville High School. After high school I attended the University of North Texas and gained early acceptance to Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. In 2004, upon completion of my first year of dental school, I received a Bachelors of Arts in Biology with minors in Chemistry and Spanish from UNT. While at Baylor, I was a member of the Odontological Honor Society and the Dean's List. I was also selected to join Omicron Kappa Upsilon, a national dental honor fraternity. I graduated in the top 15% of my class from Baylor in 2007. Since graduating I have practiced dentistry in both a clinic setting and private practice, thus allowing me to obtain a range of clinical knowledge. My favorite part of dentistry is the relationships I am able to develop with patients. I am a member of the ADA and TDA.
