As a dental student, I served a community rotation at Unity Care NW and knew after graduation I would return. The supportive staff and commitment to quality healthcare for our community are what keep me here.
I earned a BS degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology at Western Washington University in 1997 and a DDS degree from the University of Washington in 2001. I am a member of the Academy of General Dentistry and a former member of the National Health Services Corps. I am certified in ABCD Pediatric Dentistry and remain an affiliate faculty member of the UW Department of Pediatric Dentistry. I have served on the Education Committee of the Whatcom County Oral Health Coalition. I am fluent in Turkish.
