I am committed to providing high-quality dental care based on the foundation of honesty. Honesty guides me at all times because patients like you trust me with your health. I go home each day feeling good about what I do.
My daily inspiration is helping you believe in your health. It is a reward to help you achieve a comfortable and confident smile. I am just a catalyst, but you are the one who takes ownership, invests in, and maintains your oral health. I am so fortunate to be part of the process.
I am originally from a small town in Southern California and I completed my undergraduate education at University of California, Berkeley. I later graduated with high honors from University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry.
After ten years in San Francisco, I moved to Albuquerque to practice with Dr. Charles Gallagher. It was an opportunity I could not pass up. Academy Dental Care is an outstanding dental office, as you will soon find out!
We have wonderful and highly skilled team members who love spending time with each other outside of the office. We take continuing education courses together, host team potlucks, and participate in charity events. Our office is unlike any other; we have a team of all-stars!
I currently reside in Albuquerque with my husband, Gabriel Gonzales. We have a one-year-old daughter named Catalina and are surrounded by Gabe’s loving family, who help us take care of her during the week. On Fridays you might even see a one-year-old walking around the office. In my off time I like participating in USTA tennis, skiing, hiking, traveling, and spending time with my family.
