“Welcome to our family at Angleton Family Dental, offering top dental care in Angleton, TX. I am excited to meet and get to know each and every patient that comes through our office. I always knew I wanted to do something in the health care professions. As I explored my options, I gravitated directly towards dentistry. I truly feel blessed to be able to go to work every day and do what I love. In fact, my favorite part about dentistry is being able to form personal relationships with patients and interact with them on a regular basis. I have called Houston my home for the last eleven years. After an early graduation from University of Texas at Austin, I was accepted at the dental school in San Antonio, one of the best in the nation. I won awards and participated in numerous volunteer activities.
In my opinion, regardless of what you choose as a profession, you can never stop learning. To keep up-to-date with the newest technology, products, and ideas, I attend continuing dental education courses regularly. Doing so ensures that I can continue to provide only the highest level of care for my patients.
On a personal note, I also enjoy many things outside of dentistry. I primarily enjoy spending time with my family. I was also a professional soccer player as a teenager, and now whenever I get some time, I play soccer. I also like swimming and volleyball.”
