I grew up in Dos Palos, CA, a small town in the central valley and attended Modesto Adventist Academy before leaving home for college at Pacific Union College in the Napa Valley. I studied Spanish for one year in Argentina, which helped me finish my BA in Spanish at PUC along with my pre-dental requirements. After completing undergrad, I travelled to Europe and South America and enjoyed some time off before diving into dental school.
I received my DDS from Loma Linda University in southern California. I am passionate about mission work and have provided dental work overseas and locally in under-served areas.
I love all that Knoxville has to offer. From the lakes, to hiking in the mountains, east Tennessee has been a new and exciting change for me. I’m a member of the Knoxville First SDA church and have two dogs, Maggie and Panda.
I’m excited about joining Dr. Malone and his team and continuing his focus on a great patient experience and high quality dentistry.
