My friends would ask me, ”why dentistry?” to which I would respond, “Why not dentistry? I wouldn’t want to do anything else! For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to do exactly this. As a little girl growing up in Trinidad and Tobago, I always enjoyed science and art. When my twin sister began her orthodontic treatment, I saw first hand how dentistry impacted her in so many positive ways. Her smile became and still is one of her best features. And so at age 14, I knew that I was going to be a dentist. Dentistry has allowed me to continue to enjoy both science and art, while being able to help people achieve healthy and winning smiles. What started as a concept in the mind of a young Caribbean island girl, has become a reality in Island Family Dental. As a home away from home, this office allows me to treat my patients as family, delivering quality, gentle dentistry in a relaxed, calm setting. I always strive to make a patient’s visit a positive one!
