Why have I found my calling in Pediatric Dentistry?

The simple reason, I love kids! I find interactions with them to be refreshing and intriguing. I enjoy their curiosity, spontaneity, honesty, and intelligence. I love talking to each child at their level… every level! From babies who try to communicate using their facial expressions, to toddlers who start forming strong opinions about the world around them, to school age kids that start developing a social life. Not to mention the preteens who are on the road to self-discovery, and the young adults who are ready to spread their wings to independence and responsibility.
As a parent myself, I understand the desire to do the best for your children. I want to be a partner with parents on that quest. I love establishing relationships with families and watching kids go through all the stages of growing up and becoming responsible, respectful individuals. Not only am I interested in their oral health, but also their overall health as well as their emotional well-being. This is because what goes on in each child’s life translates to how they behave when they sit in the dental chair. 
My staff and I are committed to treating every child with respect, understanding, and empathy to help them build a positive attitude towards dental care.
Personal Bio
I was born and raised in Greece. I have made Minnesota my home away from home after I came here to attend the University of Minnesota to study Pediatric Dentistry. I met my husband here, who also happens to be from Greece! We have two wonderful young men, a junior in college, and a senior in high school. In my free time I enjoy cooking Greek recipes, scrapbooking, and doing organization projects. I also love to do Zumba, travel with my family, and spend time with my great friends. In addition, I enjoy being involved in organized dentistry and always love giving back to my profession.
