About Us

At State College Orthodontics, we value the fact that successful orthodontic treatment is the result of working together as a team. Along with your family dentist, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile.

About the Doctor

After I graduated from Penn State with a B.S. with honors in Biology, I attended Temple University School of Dentistry where I received my D.M.D. During my second year of dental school, I realized what a great fit the specialty of Orthodontics was for me.  From the principles of growth and development and the biology of tooth movement to the clinical applications of improving someone’s bite, it provided the perfect balance for my scientific curiosity and desire to help and care for people.

At the completion of dental school, I attended the University of Maryland Dental School for a three year post-graduate dental residency in Orthodontics. While in residency, I had the opportunity to participate in craniofacial genetic research at the Johns Hopkins Hospital Center for Craniofacial Disease and Disorders. In addition to earning a certificate in Orthodontics, I also received a Masters of Science in Oral Biology.

I was blessed to meet my husband, Steve, during my residency. We have two beautiful children and enjoy living in State College.

Accompanied by a fabulous team, I am happy to be part of a warm and friendly environment at State College Orthodontics. Together, we strive to create a positive atmosphere for each other and the people we serve.

Being a solo practitioner has allowed me to balance my commitments to my family and my patients to the best of my ability. I truly love what I do. Both personally and professionally, I try to be a positive influence in the lives of others.
