I graduated from Houston Baptist University for my undergraduate studies and attended UT- Dental school in San Antonio thereafter. In Dental school, not only did I have the chance to surround myself with some of the best faculty and students in Texas, but also met my husband, Manvir. After graduating from dental school, Manvir and I moved to the beautiful city of Austin and have never looked back. In Austin, I found an amazing food scene and the great outdoors, which I love to explore. I first fell in love with Austin during a run around Town-lake, followed by a swim at Barton Springs. What a great way to cool off and escape the sweltering summer heat!
I love my job as a dentist; not only do I get to connect with patients on a personal level, but I get to be their partner in a journey towards optimum oral health, and a beautiful smile. I believe in educating my patients and showing them how oral health relates to overall wellbeing. Since graduating from Dental School, I have participated multiple CE courses and study groups. As a clinician, it is my goal to provide patients with comprehensive, up to date dental services. I am thrilled by the opportunity to serve my local Belterra and Austin Community.
While in college at the University of Texas at Austin, I discovered my passion for the dental profession. Through volunteering activities at dental offices, I realized how much I enjoyed the dentist-patient relationship and the care given to every patient who walks through the door. My favorite moment was seeing a patient, who was embarrassed to smile her whole life, light up with joy after seeing her smile makeover. From then on, I knew I wanted to be a dentist.
I attended UT Health Science San Antonio for dental school. After four challenging but ultimately rewarding years, I graduated and became a licensed dentist. Since graduating, I have seen thousands of patients and spent 100+ hours of continuing education to stay up to date with the latest dental technology and research. I am very passionate about delivering high quality care with the most current and scientifically proven procedures.
Outside of dentistry, I love the great outdoors, especially biking, kayaking and swimming. In my down time, I also enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy novels as well as watching the occasional TV show, in particular Game of Thrones. Let’s not forget college football; my heart still bleeds burnt orange, Hookem!
