I was born in Belarus and moved to the United States with my family to go to college. From a young age, I wanted to be in the medical field to pursue my love for science, to help people, and to make a difference in the lives of others. When I started my undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee I was offered a full time dental assistant position. A few months later, I fell in love with dentistry and realized it was my dream career. I earned my dental degree from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, then finished an advanced training residency in general dentistry at Miami VA Hospital to further advance my clinical skills. I realized very early that the most conservative and yet the most artistic specialty in dentistry is orthodontics. Therefore, I decided to pursue my dream career further and completed the orthodontic residency program at Jacksonville University School of Orthodontics. I am very passionate about providing beautiful, healthy, life changing smiles for children, teens and adults. I also love to establish long lasting relationships with my patients. It is so exciting to see before and after photos and patients’ excitement when they finish their orthodontic treatment. Every day, I see that by improving someone’s smile you don’t just change their appearance, you often change their whole life for the better. This is something that motivates me to stay up to date with the latest technology and clinical skills and to provide the best customer service to my patients.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and my husband. I also like to bake various desserts, play the piano, go to the beach, as well as biking and kayaking with my family and friends. I am very excited to join the Coastline Orthodontics family to help patients achieve their dream smiles!
