Why I enjoy working at the Faculty Practice
I enjoy working with both young and old patients and to care about everyone’s specific dental needs. Lots of cavities – come and see me! Have a dry mouth – come and see me! Want a fast but thorough checkup – come and see me! I enjoy dentistry so much that I do outreach with our students during the weekends!
I do love the great outdoors, photography, camping, gardening and cooking. On my vacation I Iike to camp at the Pacific coast together with friends and my black lab “Sam,” cook up a feast and sit by the campfire. I also love to travel, and to just simply “chill out.”
Fun fact: I have a huge family tree on Ancestry with close to 10,000 ancestors, many of whom immigrated from Sweden to the United States at the turn of the last century.
