Welcome to Blue Ridge Family Dental in beautiful Apex, North Carolina! Thank you for taking time to learn more about our practice. I know how important it is to feel comfortable and confident with your choice of dental care providers. I can assure you that I will take the time to listen to your needs and do what I can to provide quality dentistry in a relaxed, family-oriented environment with a commitment to your overall oral health.
From a young age, I knew I wanted to be a dentist. Dentistry has had a positive impact on my life and I have always wanted to provide and share that experience with others. It was also around this time in my childhood that we went on a family road trip from my small west-central Wisconsin hometown through North Carolina. Between the mountains in the west to the ocean in the east, I knew I wanted to live here some day.
I received my undergraduate degree in Biology (B.S) from the University of Minnesota in 2004. From there, I went on to graduate cum laude from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 2008. After dental school, I felt it was important to gain more clinical experience so I chose to further my education with a general practice residency. This was also an opportunity to move down to North Carolina. I completed my residency at MAHEC in Asheville, NC in July of 2009. It was during this time that I fell in love with the mountains and the views along the Blue Ridge Parkway (hence the name).
We moved to Apex two years ago. I truly enjoy North Carolina living with my husband, Todd, and our two daughters, Brianna and Sophia. I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors, doing projects around the house and sewing projects with my girls.
I am honored to be an integral part of the Apex community and I look forward to welcoming you to Blue Ridge Family Dental!
