I obtained my doctorate in dentistry from the University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League institution, in 2011. I strongly believe that dentistry should be focused on more than just treatment of the mouth. I focus on oral health as part of the body as a whole. I am constantly expanding my knowledge and skill set through continuing education and evidence based dentistry. I love interacting with my patients, and making them as comfortable as possible. I also love making my patients smile! In my free time, I enjoy hiking, yoga, oil painting, and taking care of my three dogs.
I pride myself on specializing in conservative Biomimetic dentistry, taking into consideration every aspect of your heath. I am continuously searching for the latest advancements, least invasive procedures, and most natural resources available. I feel it is important to provide the patient information and options so that they can make an informed decision about what is right for them. I graduated from the Arizona School of Dentistry & Oral Health in 2009. Prior to studying at ASDOH, I attended the University of Southern California and obtained my Bachelor's degree in Dental Hygiene. I have been in the dental field for over 22 years. In addition, I hold a Certificate in Public Health from UNC Chapel Hill. Since I began practicing dentistry, I have kept up to date taking many continuing educational classes, ensuring that my patients receive the most comprehensive and state of the art dental care possible. When not at the office I enjoy spending time with my four daughters and my husband Alex, doing Pilates, seeing movies, and traveling to places with warm beaches!
I started my career in dentistry over 2 decades ago as a dental assistant in Southern California. When I decided to further my education and become a hygienist I moved to Arizona. Since moving to Arizona I have lived in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Cottonwood. I am very excited to be transitioning from traditional dentistry to Biological/Holistic dentistry. I love being in an environment that focuses on patient care and overall health. When I am not in the office I enjoy spending time with my mother and my husband and walking my dog. I also enjoy cooking, yoga, and Pure Barre.
Hello! My name is Katie and I was born and raised in South Dakota. I graduated from the University of South Dakota with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. Following dental hygiene school my husband and I decided to move to Scottsdale, AZ to pursue career opportunities. Although we miss our families back home, we absolutely love the valley and exploring the diverse scenery around it! I love the field of dentistry and all it has to offer as well as serving my community through outreach, presenting vital information in free clinics across the valley. I have had the honor of teaching didactic and clinical courses in dental hygiene. I love to constantly learn about and grow in my profession, which is why I am so grateful to be a part of Integrative Dental! Other passions of mine include travel, music, sports, snow skiing, and my huge family!
Hello! My name is Leah, raised in Maryland and then beautiful Arizona. I have spent the last two years living in Boulder, Colorado giving me the experience of mountain life; but there’s nothing like home. I’ve always loved the dental environment, and knew I wanted to become a dental hygienist since the age of 7. Graduated with a bachelors in dental hygiene from Northern Arizona University and have been working in holistic biological dentistry since. I’ve worked corporate, private and holistic, but once you go holistic, you can’t go back! I pride myself in giving each patient the individualized care and education to achieve optimal oral and whole body health with natural products. The most rewarding part of my career is converting patients from fear of the dentist, to making it a pleasant, fun experience. In my spare time, you can find me traveling, exercising, pampering my two cats, or exploring the great outdoors around us.
Hello my name is Fabiola. I am blessed to be a part of Integrative Dental Associates. I have been a dental assistant for 6 years. I developed an interest in holistic health since becoming a mommy. I have a happy and healthy son who keeps me busy away from work. I love spending time outdoors and bonding with my family.
Hello I'm Natalie I have been in the dental field for 9 years. After practicing traditional dentistry and realizing it was not the best care or in the best interest for the patient, coming into the biological side of dentistry has been a huge blessing. I love what I do and hope to continue my education in biological dentistry! When not at work I enjoy spending time with my kids and husband, hiking, music, and being a mom.
Hi! My name is Kate and I have been a dental assistant for over 5 years. I was born and raised in Oregon and just recently moved to Arizona. I developed an interest in Biological dentistry after working in traditional dentistry and am blessed to now be a part of the Integrative Dental Associates team. In my free time I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, cooking, and spending time with my husband and family.
My name is Briana and I have been working in the dental field for 5 years. I am beyond joyful to become a part of Integrative Dental Associates! It is a huge blessing to work with so many great people who have an understanding and passion for patient's overall health. Outside of work I am a proud mother of three beautiful children. My family spends a lot of time outdoors, camping, fishing, and riding our off road vehicles.
I previously worked in the emergency department and gained broad knowledge of current health issues. It was then I decided to follow a different path and began my Masters program in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, focusing on investigative, holistic and patient-centered care.
It is a no-brainer that biological dentistry is part of this functional medicine model. I am so grateful to be part of a team working to create a positive impact on patients’ overall health and well-being.
When I’m not working or studying, I am an avid trail runner and hiker who loves to cook for friends and family.
I was born and raised in central Phoenix and attended Saint Simon and Jude grade school and Saint Mary's HS. I joined the US Coast Guard at age 19 and spent 2-1/2 years on the icebreaker Polar Sea. I have sailed the seven seas and have visited 6 continents. Several years ago I started a business as a general contractor here in the valley and gave it up to come work at Integrative Dental Associates. I am very pleased with my decision. My wife and I recently celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and are currently trying to figure out how to raise our teenager.
