As a general dentist, I provide a broad spectrum of dentistry and interact with a diverse age group of patients. Patient education and community service are also large parts of my career.

I developed critical, observational, and analytical skills through polymer science research while working in Professor Wei Chen's lab at Mount Holyoke College.  These skills are crucial for accurate diagnosis and efficient treatment for my patients. The interdisciplinary nature of biochemistry and the integration of multiple disciplines in dentistry and medicine prepared me to develop comprehensive diagnostic abilities.

My biochemistry education and research experience at Mount Holyoke provided a solid foundation for me to become a compassionate and competent dentist.
