Meet The Dentist



After practicing in community health for several years, I joined the team at Nampa Smiles. I grew up in Northern Utah, but have made the treasure valley home. I attended Weber State University. After graduating Cum Laude, I moved to Virginia where I attended the Medical College of Virginia (VCU) for dental school. While there, I grew to love the practice of dentistry and enjoy all aspects of dentistry. Following dental school, I decided to advance my skills and complete a residency program at the University of Utah hospital in Salt Lake City. While I was there I was able to hone in my skills in advanced oral surgery, endodontics (root canals), dental implants, pediatrics, oral and IV sedation, and orthodontics. I truly enjoy all aspects of dentistry and love advancing my knowledge and skill through continuing education.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family. I have 2 young boys that keep me very busy. I love to fly fish, ride snowmobiles, and ATV’s. I could not be happier to join the team here at Nampa Smiles. I will be located at our south office and look forward to treating you and your families dental needs.


I grew up in Portland Oregon and after attending the University of Idaho for my undergraduate degree in biology, I knew I eventually wanted to make Idaho my permanent home. I spent five years as a dental assistant before confirming that my true passion was to become a dentist. I then moved to Arizona for dental school and attended A.T. Still University, Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. While there I was fortunate to go on three rotations at community health clinics in surrounding states that helped shape the provider I am today. As a dentist we are not only treating a tooth, but that tooth is connected to a whole person, that is then connected to a family and is connected to a community, and we want our patients to be their best and contribute their best to the community. I moved back to Idaho in 2021 and love working with the team at Nampa Smiles, it truly feels like a family. I appreciate learning wonderful insight from my colleagues and mentors here at Nampa Smiles and through continuing education opportunities. I look forward to providing excellent care to all patients in this community at several of our office locations. In my free time I enjoy watching sports, gardening, and being outside with my two hound dogs exploring new hiking trails or dog parks.
