I am originally from Minnesota, but was raised in Georgetown, Texas. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Texas A & M University. Although a true Aggie, my dental degree is from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, where I was an active researcher in the cosmetic dentistry department. My focus in private practice has been in restorative and cosmetic dentistry. My wife and I live in Flower Mound and enjoy raising our twins.
While I am a native Texan, I have enjoyed opportunities that have taken me all over this great country. I was born and raised in Lytle, TX, about 30 minutes south of San Antonio. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from St. Mary’s University, I was accepted into the University of Texas at San Antonio Health Science Center Dental School. Upon receiving my D.D.S. in 1994, I made the decision to join the United States Air Force as a Dental Officer with the rank of Captain. During my six-year career in the Air Force, I completed an Advanced Education General Dentistry Residency and completed assignments at McGuire AFB, NJ, Bolling AFB, DC and The Pentagon. It was there in the Pentagon where I met my husband Jeff, who was stationed there as an Air Force Intelligence Officer. In 1999, we got married, separated from the Air Force and moved to Andover, Massachusetts (near Jeff’s home town). Initially, I worked as an Associate in a longstanding dental practice not far from Phillips Academy (George Bush’s prep school), however, after 5 years I made the decision to open my own practice – The Art of Dentistry. In 2007, after Jeff received a great job opportunity in Dallas we – along with our two beautiful daughters, Allyson and Anna – made the difficult decision to sell the practice and move back to where it all started – TEXAS!
My family and I live in Southlake, TX where I enjoy staying active – running, playing with my family and traveling all over the world. I am excited to be a part of the Cross Timbers Dental team and look forward to leveraging my skills and expertise to provide a world-class experience for each and every patient.
I was born and raised in Minnesota, but moved to Texas in 1977. I attended the University of North Texas where I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology, and shortly after, graduated from Baylor College of Dentistry in 1992. I followed my passion, and have been practicing general dentistry since that time. I recently refurbished a home in the historical district of downtown Grapevine, where I live with my wife of 13 years, Lori, and our two very spoiled dogs, Stitch and Frank. In our spare time, we love staying active with travel, collecting wine, and outdoor activities with family and friends. We are big supporters of local children’s charities including Make a Wish, and Children’s Cancer Fund of Dallas, where my wife serves on the Board of Directors. I am happy to have joined such a great family here at Cross Timbers Dental, and enjoy the relationships I’ve built with my patients.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea, and in 2004, my family and I moved to Texas. My family settled in Flower Mound, where I attended Flower Mound High School. After that, I continued my studies at the University of Texas at Austin, earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology in 2015.
Subsequently, I became a dentist after graduating from the Texas A&M College of Dentistry in 2019. For 4 years, I worked in the Mid-Cities area before returning to Flower Mound to practice dentistry.
In high school, I contemplated a path in fine arts, but ultimately chose dentistry as it allows me to merge my hand skills with my passion for helping others. I am dedicated to delivering top-notch quality dental work while making sure patients feel comfortable. When I graduated dental
school, my excellent chairside manners and clinical skills were recognized with 2 awards: American Association of Endodontists Student Achievement Award and American Prosthodontic Society Student of Merit Award.
In my spare time, I listen to audio books, create art, and play video games. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and am happy to be closer to them. I am honored to join the remarkable team at Cross Timbers Dental and excited at the prospect of returning to my hometown to serve our community!
