It’s such a pleasure to be part of the Glen Park Dental team! I grew up in Toronto, Canada where the winters are a tad bit colder!  Growing up, I was taught the importance of giving back to my community, which is why I always wanted to pursue a career in healthcare.  In my undergraduate career, I studied biology and psychology and honored in both fields. I then pursued graduate training in occupational therapy and practiced as an Occupational Therapist. After four years of practice, I decided to chase my other passion relating to healthcare – dentistry! My career paths have always been centered around opportunities where I can work with and help people in need.

I completed my dental training at the New York University College of Dentistry.  It was incredible to live in New York, especially since it gave me the opportunity to learn from many of the best dentists in Manhattan.  While I was at NYU, I was selected to be a part of the Esthetics Honors Program.  This experience allowed me to work side-by-side with esthetic dentists in Manhattan and learn from their clinical expertise.

I currently live in San Francisco and love the West Coast life.  When I’m not at work, you can find me trying out new foods in San Francisco, exploring the Bay Area and rooting for Toronto Sports (Go Raptors!).

As a dentist, I treat patients like family. No matter what your concerns are, I’m happy to listen and work with you to meet your goals. Together as a team, we can achieve a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth!
