While I was attending Northern Arizona University for my undergraduate degree, I fell in love with Flagstaff. After graduating from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, I became aware of the sale of a practice in Flagstaff.
Dr. Bobbitt established this practice in 1977. Many of our patients have been coming to this office for more than 20 years. In 2002-2003, we worked together, in both the Flagstaff office and the Tuba City practice. I took over the practice fully in January 2003, when Dr. Bobbitt retired. In 2003, I also met Dr. Bobbitt’s daughter Beth, and we were married. He always teases me that he would have made me pay a lot more for the practice if he had known it was going to include his daughter!
I am an active member of the Flagstaff community. I am secretary treasurer for the Northern Arizona Dental Society. I’m also an active member with our local dental study group. There is always something new to learn in dentistry. I attend numerous continuing education courses on dental implants, cosmetic dentistry, oral surgery, and endodontics (root canals). I want my patients to receive the most up-to-date and best care available.
In my free time, I am a great lover of the outdoors; I enjoy hiking, camping, and snowboarding. Beth and I have three beautiful girls: Maddie, Abby, and Lindsey. We love to spend time traveling with them and experiencing different places, history, and cultures.
I believe that excellence in dentistry begins with a careful co-diagnosis and treatment plan to establish the goals we will achieve together. Communication and long-term relationships are important in our practice. We want you to feel you join our office for a lifetime of dental care. Let us know what’s on your mind and ask questions. We will help you realize that an investment in yourself pays dividends for a lifetime. We are caring, skilled professionals, and dedicated to simplifying what is often a very complicated and confusing area of health care.
I want all our patients to be informed and knowledgeable about their dental health, from treatment plans to various options and available services. I strive to make you feel as if you are joining my dental family.
