Hi, I am originally from the lower mainland, I graduated from UBC Dentistry in 2006. Shortly after I moved to Edmonton to work as an associate. I worked in Alberta for three years and during this time I met my husband, Kevin. We decided to move to Vernon in 2009 and became a husband – and wife dental team.
We feel very privileged to live here!
I love general dentistry; the field is constantly changing and there is always something to learn and improve. My interests lie in Sleep Disorder Breathing/Obstructive Sleep apnea and after taking a rigorous course through Tufts University I have learned so much about Obstructive Sleep Apnea and how it impacts our health. It is eye-opening to see how common and underdiagnosed OSA is.
Understanding the biology of the airway and how it relates to dental health has become a major part of my practice. In addition to sleep dentistry, I enjoy cosmetic dentistry and pediatrics. I have completed many smile designs. I love the artistry involved in changing people’s smiles. I work with an amazing ceramist who fabricates beautiful porcelain veneers and crowns. And lastly, I enjoy working with children. Our office goes to great lengths to make children feel comfortable and we have been successful with treating children in our office with minimal sedation.
I am proud of our team and our clinic. Our staff is so caring, and they go out of their way to make our patients feel welcomed and cared for. We have come a long way with the office – it is designed to be efficient and functional but it is also a beautiful working environment. While the practice keeps me quite busy, I love being a mom to my three children: Taron, Lara, and Isla. We ski in the winter and spend as much time on the lake in the summer.
I welcome you to our practice.
