The greatest satisfaction I receive is seeing how joyful our patients are when their smile has been restored. The people I work with have become life-long friends who know that they can count on me for support, both personally and professionally. I am honored to have the opportunity of treating second and third generation patients. It is heartwarming to know that past experiences have resulted in continued full confidence that my team and I will consistently deliver excellent dental care. For patients' convenience, I am fluent in French, Spanish, and Italian.

Outside the Office
I was born in Paris and grew up in Europe, then moved to the United States to attend college as well as dental school. Having lived abroad I am fluent in French, Spanish and Italian. It has been my great pleasure to have lived and worked in Kensington for the past 25 years. Here, I have raised two amazing grown children; Austin, a St Mary's college graduate as well as L'Academie de Cuisine graduate, and Morgan, a VCU College of Arts graduate. Our family also includes a friendly Old English Sheep dog named Yeti, and our newest addition, Opie, an American-Eskimo/Beagle mix. With my children, I share passions for cooking, playing guitar, skiing and traveling.
In the past, I have been involved with M.E.D.I.C.O.’s week-long dental mission in Honduras, and found great satisfaction bringing smiles to the faces of those who need it the most!
