Dental Touch Associates has been my dental home since 1991! I love the connection I have developed with my patients over the years. There is nothing better than watching children grow, get married, and bring their own children into our office because they remember the great dental experience they had as a child at Dental Touch. I also love the relationships I have developed over the decades with my other patients as we have walked together through the milestones of life, loss of loved ones, and various health issues. Sometimes I just provide a listening ear and always a guiding voice to help my patients establish their best oral health.
I started in dentistry as a graduate from the Dental Assistant Program at Kirkwood in 1978. Then, I graduated in 1982 from the University of Iowa with a Bachelors of Science in Dental Hygiene. I have expanded my education through many continuing education courses throughout the years, always striving to provide my patients with the most cutting edge technology, treatment, and information available.
My husband, Ron, and I have been married for over 30 years. We have two young adult daughters, Anna and Emma. Watching my girls grow up to be who God is calling them to be has been by greatest joy in life. In my free time, I volunteer at Treasures, a resale shop that supports Bridgehaven’s pregnancy support team. I also enjoy traveling and camping.
