Throughout college, I was a member of two mentoring programs; Jewels Inc. and Young Ladies of Tomorrow in which I was able to work with children and young girls in the Washington Metropolitan area. Being able to watch my mentees matriculate through school and see growth in their personal lives really resonated to me the importance and advantage of early intervention especially for children. This is where my passion for working with children began.
In dental school, I was able to participate in different programs geared to working with children. My favorite experience was participating as lead coordinator for Lessons In A Lunchbox, an oral health awareness program that serviced over 100 kids at Cleveland Elementary School. I was also able to serve as co-coordinator and group leader for H.O.P.E Yes!; a health science enrichment program geared towards minority children. These unique experiences solidified my interest in pediatric dentistry.
My primary goal is to create a healthy foundation and fun environment for patients and parents. I believe early health promotion and disease prevention is key in oral health awareness. I aim to not only provide excellent services to patients, but to establish a rapport and educate patients and parents on the importance of oral health while having fun!
