I have always found practicing orthodontics to be extremely gratifying. Not only am I using the skills and expertise acquired during my training, but I also have the joy in seeing the benefits of a beautiful smile for my patients.
I went to the University of New Hampshire for my Pre-Dental program upon and was able to complete my undergraduate degree in two and a half years. Out of my 150 classmates in our graduating class, there were only two women, so I guess you could say I was a pioneer for women in the dental profession.
I went to Indiana University Dental School in Indianapolis and graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I continued on to Tufts University in Boston where I received my Certificate of Orthodontics in 1976 and was only the second American woman to complete the program.
I feel that any field is always changing, especially the sciences. I made a three year commitment to the Roth-Williams Functional Occlusal course in San Francisco, CA and continue to attend national and local study club meetings to continue my education.
I am a frequent speaker at the Greater New York Dental Meeting. At the 2015 meeting, I lectured on “Complex Invisalign Adult Cases”‘ and “Complex Invisalign Teen Cases.”
I am a Charter member of the American Lingual Orthodontic Association and I have been performing Invisible (behind the teeth) braces since their inception.
I am listed as a Top Dentist in New York since 2017 by Top Doc New York.
