I am proud to say that I was born and raised in Leamington. I began my studies at the University of Windsor, where I earned three degrees in Mathematics & Biology, Education, and Masters of Science. I then completed my Doctor of Dental Surgery through the University of Detroit Mercy.
I was fortunate enough to achieve multiple awards upon graduating from dental school - The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons presented me with the top dental surgical award while The Academy of Operative Dentistry presented me with the top operative dentistry (dental fillings) award. I have since gained Fellowship status from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. It is my hope to use my passion for dentistry to provide excellent patient care.
I have always been fully committed to Windsor/Essex. This is where I live with my amazing wife, Ghada and our three wildly independent children, Princesses Cadence, Ariya and Eliana. My commitment to our local community is best exemplified with the founding of a registered charity that gives back to local patients who are undergoing active cancer therapy, the Love, Betty Cancer Foundation.
Being the daughter of a nurse, it's no surprise that I chose a career in health care. I love working in dentistry and truly enjoy the relationships that caring for my patients allows me. I have found the challenges of customizing dental treatment based on knowing my patients' individual needs and desires extremely rewarding. I also enjoy the artistic outlet that dentistry allows me.
Originally from Amherstburg, Ontario, I graduated from the dental school at the University of Western Ontario in 1994. I have been fortunate to have been able to serve the community of LaSalle for 22 years as an associate dentist and now as a practice owner. Part of what keeps dentistry exciting for me is continually updating my knowledge and skills through ongoing participation in study clubs, lectures, workshops and online learning.
I currently reside in South Windsor with my husband Len, my two daughters Kristen and Erin and our bunny Rocky. I am an avid runner and enjoy working in my garden, reading and spending time with family and friends.

Dentistry has been such a rewarding profession for me since it has allowed me to combine my passions for science, art and patient-centered care.

I enjoy learning and keeping up to date with the newest techniques and innovations in dentistry by attending multiple continuing education courses every year.
