“I couldn’t ask for a more rewarding job. Nothing makes me happier than to be part of the transformation of a nervous new patient who is anxious to even chat with me in the conference room to a confident, smiling member of the Lund Dental family. I love the intellectual and technical parts of dentistry and being able to apply my skills to make a difference in someone’s life. And, I can truly say my job is fun. Catching up with patients, learning about their lives, and fostering long-term relationships makes each day enjoyable.”

After college, I moved to New York City and worked as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs. Within the first year of my job, I knew a career in finance would not provide me with the job fulfillment for which I was looking. As a child I always knew how much my father loved his job; he described it as the perfect combination of science and engineering, technical skills, and interpersonal interactions. I applied to dental school on gut instinct, and it was the best decision I ever made.

I enjoy visiting local elementary schools during National Children’s Dental Health Month and participating in local community service events. I have visited the Robin Hood School for the past 12 years in a row!

Outside of Lund Dental, I am extremely busy with my three children Caroline, Dave Jr., and William (named for my father Dr. William Lund) and my husband Dave. I love arts and crafts, including scrapbooking, sewing, and cake decorating and spending time with my large extended family in Falmouth on Cape Cod.
