About Us
Mission Statement​
Our goal is to provide quality, loving care to our patients using state of the art equipment and advanced techinques.  We want all children that walk into our office to know we care about them and make them feel so comfortable that they never want to leave. We hope to equip parents with an understanding of dentistry to make informed, intellectual decisions regarding their child's needs and that they too wish they could be a patient of record.

    Chairside Assistant I was born and raised in Roswell, NM, where I graduated from Roswell High School and ENMU-Roswell with an Associates of Applied Sciences. I chose pediatric dentistry because I believe it is important to educate our youth and to enhance oral hygiene as well as to promote quality dental care for generations to come. I enjoy building trusting relationships with my small patients to create a fun and exciting dental experience. In my spare time, I enjoy quality time with my family as well as scrapbooking.
