As a dentist, I am daily reminded of how important and rewarding my profession is. Being able to give my patients healthy and beautiful smiles is not only beneficial to their overall health, but it also vastly improves their confidence and self-esteem. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Texas in Biological Science with minors in Chemistry and Spanish. I then completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery Degree at the University of Texas Health Science Center, in 2001. Following graduation, I enrolled into a residency program at Great Lakes Naval Base, in Illinois, and completed my post-doctoral training in Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD). I was born in Athens, Greece where my father was stationed with the US Navy. I moved to Texas in 1989. I am married with two children and a golden retriever. Outside the office, I have fun doing various outdoor activities, like mountain biking and jogging.
