With over 30 years of dental experience, Victoria says great dental work is still exciting to her!

In her time away from the office, Victoria loves walking her dog Mazey Mae, SCUBA diving, and exercising. As a child, Victoria’s parents actually had to trick her into going to the dentist’s office -- and now she can’t get away!
