I feel lucky to have found a profession that I love and that I am passionate about. As an orthodontist, I find that I not only straighten my patient’s teeth, but I change their lives as well. I see each one of my patients is an individual and enjoy meeting their unique needs by creating a new, beautiful smile.
I received my undergraduate degree in Mathematics and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Albertus Magnus College. I also carried high honors at the University of Connecticut where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine. After practicing as a general dentist for six years and teaching, I returned to the University of Connecticut for my post-doctoral Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Dental Science degree.
I believe in continually advancing my education so that I can offer my patients the best possible care and results. As a member of several professional organizations, I am able to keep up-to-date on the latest technology and treatment options. I am active in the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Association, and the Illinois Society of Orthodontists.
I am fortunate to work with a fabulous team, made up of staff members who are knowledgeable and highly trained in delivering patient-focused orthodontic care. Our patients can tell that our team truly loves what they do and enjoys making each patient’s experience excellent.
I live on the North Shore with my husband, John, and our two children, Kate and Jack. When I am not in the office, I enjoy traveling with my family and playing golf and tennis with my friends.
