I will explain your treatment options using the most up-to-date diagnostic tools available and then provide the best treatment to suit your individual needs. If saving natural teeth is not possible, I will present you with the most modern alternatives.


After obtaining my DDS, I practiced general dentistry for three years in a private practice in Costa Rica. Since completing my four-year postgraduate education, I have been serving the community of South Louisiana as a periodontal dental specialist. I live in New Orleans with my husband and three wonderful children.
