“I started SMYL Dentistry because of my own personal story. Growing up, I had countless problems with my teeth – missing teeth to everything being super crooked.

At 16 I was in a wakeboarding accident and broke most of my front teeth. After that trauma, I didn’t smile very much. But my life changed dramatically when I got a full smile makeover at age 18. I realized how important my smile was to my daily life.

That’s why I’m a dentist. I want every patient who walks through our door to enjoy that kind of life change. My passion is creating an incredible dental experience while delivering excellent dentistry and smile makeovers that help people experience the smile of their dreams.”
