What made you decide to get into your line of work?
I’ve had poor eyesight since childhood. Optometry always interested me,
so I followed that course of study. I'm also interested in fashion, and
glasses have become super fun and stylish. So I combined my medical
skills and fashion sense and opened Wink—my own optometry practice
with a built in glasses boutique.
How do you employ new technology to help your patients?
Several new technologies have made a great impact in my work and
patient care. The Optomap and OCT allows me to look at the retina
without using dilating drops. The other, i.Scription, maps the eye and
that information helps me write a perfect prescription, correcting many
secondary sight problems such as difficulty with night vision.

What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?
Transforming a diseased mouth into a healthy one—which promotes overall wellness—and how it gives the patient such joy and confidence. Seeing firsthand
the impact a healthy, beautiful smile can have on a person is very rewarding.
I am a third generation dentist; and was always drawn to the medical,
artistic and social aspects of dentistry. My father touched the lives of so
many in such a wonderful way that it inspired me to do the same.
What is unique about your business?
I often have aspiring dentists shadow in our practice to get a feel for the
industry. I share with them one of the things I treasure most about my job—
developing long-term relationships with our patients. It’s been wonderful
treating patients from childhood to young adulthood and sharing in their
joys and accomplishments along the way.
