I’m so excited to join the team at Wynkoop Dentistry! The positivity, enthusiasm, and overall vibe of this practice is electric, and I hope you feel it too! Working in such a supportive environment fosters a culture centered around teamwork and top-notch patient care, and I’m so happy to start sharing my love of dentistry with you.
I grew up in a family of engineers, so my entire upbringing was saturated with a passion for science, mechanics, and creativity. Quickly realizing I was an extrovert and better suited for a career working with people, I found the perfect amalgam (pun intended) of my interests in a single profession: dentistry. I like to think of myself as “a citizen of the world,” having spent my childhood bouncing around from state-to-state and country-to-country. My Air Force family’s tendency to move so frequently instilled in me a love of meeting new people and getting to know them more personally. I apply this to my work, and I love hearing from fearful patients that I’ve changed their perception of dentists.
I moved to Colorado after graduating from the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and fell in love with this beautiful state. After graduating from dental school, I stayed in Colorado to complete my residency in hospital dentistry before ultimately deciding to create a permanent home in Denver. I have been happily working as a general and special care dentist in private practice ever since! I love my job because it allows me to get to know individuals and families, and watch them grow. Working at Wynkoop Dentistry allows me to utilize the latest in science and technology to provide state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for everyone. When I’m not practicing dentistry or telling (bad) jokes to my patients, you can find me climbing up (or skiing down) a mountain, reading books, gardening, or testing out new recipes in the kitchen!
