A Love for Helping Others
Creating beautiful, healthy smiles to last a lifetime is my passion. I am so lucky to be in the dental profession where I have hours to spend with my patients, unlike some healthcare colleagues who are only allowed minutes. I truly hope to have a positive and maybe even profound impact on your over-all health and well-being. It is my desire to build trust and rapport, and to learn about your particular concerns. With a holistic and integrative approach, I'll work with you in attaining your esthetic and functional goals and we'll review how your oral health influences your systemic health, and vice versa. I want for you to feel welcomed, comfortable and to know that you are important to the entire BDD Team. Most of all, I hope to empower you to live up to your utmost health potential.
Education and Experience
- Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science – Texas A&M (Whoop!) University
- Doctor of Dental Surgery – Baylor College of Dentistry
Following dental school, I was commissioned as a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. I had the honor of practicing dentistry at Osan Air Base in South Korea, McChord Air Force Base in Washington, the United States Military Academy at West Point, and Fort Still in Oklahoma.
I am committed to delivering the highest level of dental care to each of my patients. That requires me to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field through continuing education courses. I’ve studied Oxygen/Ozone Therapy, Holistic and Biocompatible Dentistry, Integrative Oral Systemic Dentistry, Restorative Implant dentistry, Full-mouth Reconstruction, Facial Esthetics, Invisalign®, and I am currently enrolled in an Integrative Medicine and Dentistry residency program. Indeed, I am a dental "nerd" who loves to learn so that I can best help you attain whole-body systemic and oral health.

I grew up in Tyler, TX and fell in love with New Hampshire when I moved here in 2007. I live in Brentwood with my husband Steve and two sons, Micah and Griffin. Our family also includes a dog (introduced below), and a Ragdoll cat, named Whidbey.
When I’m not in the office, I’m usually found with my family. I love the adventure of watching my kids grow (too fast!). I also enjoy cooking clean and balanced meals, working out, practicing yoga, and walking our dog. I’ve been known to attempt to play golf, too. Personally, I’m passionate about my family, my faith, and living a balanced, healthy life.
Introducing Agatha Grace!
Agatha, or Aggy as we call her, is getting acquainted with our office in hopes of making your dental visit more enjoyable. She is a Twoodle which is the offspring of a Golden Doodle and a Schnoodle! She is kind, gentle, and most importantly she does not shed and does not bother those with allergies! Aggy hopes to become a certified therapy dog, but for now she’s really happy to meet you, make you smile, and to hopefully trick you into giving her some love!
