My dental education began with an associate degree in Dental Hygiene from SUNY Farmingdale in1972. I graduated from Georgetown University School of Dentistry with a DDS, (Doctor of Dental Surgery), in 1979. Each year I seek out continuing education courses that allow me to excel in full mouth restorative care that include TMJ treatment and diagnosis, conscious sedation, gold restoration, and state of the art cosmetic procedures as well as all routine procedures. As for professional affiliations, I am an active member of the Ninth District Dental Society, the American Association of Women Dentists, Mastermind Dental Study Club, the American Academy of Dental Practice Administrators, the RV Tucker Gold Study Club, and the Dutchess County Dental Society. A high achiever, I have a passionate commitment to providing excellent dentistry. I am a humble student of life, and love the challenges presented by running my own dental practice for over 25 years. I have been afforded the opportunity of working with many gifted team members, colleagues, and mentors. I am a Beacon native. I have a huge immediate and extended family. I am blessed with this family, good health, and a wonderful clientele. For these gifts, I am eternally grateful. I have a strong desire and commitment to give back to my community and make a difference.
