Health and Wellness
I am so grateful to be in the dental profession at this exciting time! Building relationships and creating beautiful, healthy smiles to last a lifetime is my passion. Your oral health has been scientifically proven (time and time again) to play a critical role in your total body health and wellness. 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 an 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 welcome, 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

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 Biologic Dental Medicine residency program. Graduation is November 4, 2018! 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 two dogs (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 dogs. 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 Aggy and Star!
Aggy and Star (when requested) will be at the office to make your dental visit more enjoyable. They are "Twoodles" which is the offspring of a Golden Doodle and a Schnoodle! They are kind, gentle, and most importantly they do not shed and typically do not bother those with allergies! Aggy is working on becoming 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! Star is still a puppy... give her time;-)
