As a North Country native, I am very excited to be back in our community to provide comprehensive dental care at Sandstone Family Dentistry.
I grew up in Massena, and graduated from Massena Central School in 2010. From an early age I had a great interest in the healthcare field. In 2014 I graduated Summa Cum Laude from SUNY Potsdam with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Upon graduation, I became employed as a dental assistant. It was during this time that I became inspired to further my education and pursue a career as a dentist. I graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in May 2020.
During dental school I provided care in a Remote Area Medical clinic located in Cookesville, TN, and conducted dental screenings during the Special Olympics.
After graduating from dental school, I completed a General Practice Residency Program at the Erie County Medical Center in Buffalo, NY. Post-residency, I gained additional experience as a general dentist with Saint Regis Mohawk Health Services.
I joined the team of Sandstone Family Dentistry in August 2022. Dr. Smith and Dr. Howlett have been wonderful mentors to me, sharing their knowledge and clinical techniques. I am grateful to have found my office family so close to home, and I am committed to continuing the excellent level of care our patients have come to expect.
My husband and I live in Massena with our two puppies. When not at the office, I enjoy hiking in the Adirondacks or walking with my dogs.
