    “I grew up in Toronto, Canada and attended McMaster University before obtaining my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.

    “I grew up in Toronto, Canada and attended McMaster University before obtaining my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. Dr. Yip convinced me that Texas is the best state for us after meeting her in dental school. (Of course, she was right.) We got married soon after we moved to Texas and we are blessed with two wonderful boys. After practicing dentistry as an associate for ten years, Dr. Yip and I decided to open our own practice that would better fit our visions and goals – a patient-focused practice that provides the highest standards of personalized dental care.  
    I am consistently looking for new techniques and knowledge to advance my skills.  With over 1000 continuing education hours, my patients benefit from the up-to-date comprehensive care that I am able to provide.”

    I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Science from the University of Texas at Dallas before attending Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where I graduated with my degree in Dental Medicine. I have been in the dental field for over 13 years, starting as a dental assistant in 2003. My draw to dentistry comes from my LOVE of building relationships with people. Little did I know how it would end up impacting my life and bringing me a husband and two beautiful boys. I pride myself and my dental team on our ability to provide professional care with advanced technologies. I enjoy all aspects of family and cosmetics dentistry, but with extensive experiences in pediatrics dentistry and being a mother of two little ones, I especially enjoy helping and treating pediatric patients.  
    When I am not working hard to care for your smile, I love traveling and spending time with my family and kids.  My favorite food is crawfish – between my 4 years old and I, we can down 10 lbs no problem!

    I grew up in the very small town of Crandall Texas and I currently live in Forney Texas. I come from a large family of five siblings, a sister in law, and two nephews so far! I love to go shopping, travel, and work out when I have the time to! I have a French Bulldog puppy named Lada! She is the start of my little family and is very spoiled! I love my career and the fact that I am able to create relationships with my patients to keep their experience the most personable every time they come to visit us!
