Small Smiles

I find joy in helping build the health of small smiles …

and in preparing for the next step of my journey towards that career.

Where do you find joy? What have you done today to experience that joy? If nothing yet, there’s plenty of time! Go out and create your smile!

It is a true gift and honor to serve as a national Give Kids A Smile Ambassador and help this program grow and reach new heights. Recently, my experience with Give Kids A Smile and with a specific, marvelous young patient was featured on the American Dental Association Foundation website.

The face behind the blog

This week was Match Day for dental students in the United States.

I am so honored and grateful to be training in pediatric dentistry at Boston Children’s Hospital – Harvard! My class at Harvard School of Dental Medicine is filled with 34 shining examples of hard work, compassion, and determination, and I am honored to be standing by their side through this journey. In five months, this group of dental students will become dentists!!!! I couldn’t be more proud of this dental family.

Do you have questions about dental school or residency? Reach out. I’m happy to be of assistance in any way I can.
