Changing Lives, One Smile at a Time
I take great pride in helping my patients maintain and improve their oral health. Dentistry is a great combination of making positive contributions to someone’s health while being able to interact and meet with new people. Every day, I help people learn about their oral health, empower them to take control of it, and ensure that they achieve the radiant smiles they desire.
To me, dentistry is so much more than treating teeth—it’s about building connections, educating people about the interplay between the health of their body and their mouth, and helping them achieve wellness. It’s about changing my patients’ lives one smile at a time!
Of course, it would be impossible to provide the level of care that we do without our staff. The Underhill Dental team is the foundation for our success. They each have a personal relationship with every patient based on respect, empathy, and compassion. Our team is positive, happy, upbeat, and professional. We are all committed to treating our patients like family and helping each to achieve their smile dreams. You’ll not find a more kindhearted group of people anywhere!
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from York University with an honours B.Sc. in biology. I was accepted to dental school at Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry, one of the most prestigious and challenging dental programs in the world. There I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine.
Dentistry is a daily practice and there’s always something new to learn. The field is constantly evolving and I am committed to remaining current on changes through continuing education. I’ve completed postgraduate courses in Invisalign®, implantology, periodontic and endodontic care, oral surgery, and cosmetic and pediatric dentistry.
Having extensive and in-depth knowledge of dentistry enables me to deliver comprehensive and individualized treatment plans and ensures the best experience and strongest results for patients.
I am an active member of several dental organizations. This allows me to learn from the leaders in oral healthcare through continuing education and access to multiple refereed journals and other publications that discuss treatment modalities and advanced techniques.

Beyond the Practice
I’m a native of Toronto and the youngest of two sisters. My sister is my best friend and number one supporter. When not caring for patients, I love cooking, canvas painting, and losing myself in a book. I’m passionate about health and fitness, practicing yoga, and playing tennis.
