I was born and raised on a tropical island: St. Thomas, US Virgin Islands. During my time there, I noticed there was a lack of awareness with dental care which ultimately led me to my career. Even though I grew up where some may consider paradise, New York City became my home throughout my experiences in residency and having my family close by. The goal of endodontics is to save teeth by creating an environment for the body to heal itself. My role is to make sure the patient is asymptomatic after endodontic treatment so my colleague dentists can focus on what they do best!
