I love to make people smile and I feel a great sense of accomplishment when the patient actually looks forward to coming in for treatment! I enjoy the difficult and challenging cases and the success stories that come from them!

I have been with Shierling Family Dentistry since 2006 and love the ladies I work with. Each one has become special to me. We work as a team and help each other. We always have the patient’s best interest in mind and it’s always a pleasure to work at a place where you’re not afraid to have your family and friends go for treatment!

I am interested in dentistry because I always had a good experience at the dental office and wanted others to feel that way and share my passion.

Working at Shierling Family Dentistry provides a great energy. The office and patients are wonderful!
