Improving Lives, One Person and One Smile at a Time
I am passionate about delivering the best dental care possible in a positive, supportive environment. Being a dentist is more than working on teeth. It’s building a relationship with each person and helping them achieve optimal oral and overall wellness. That starts with education.
It’s essential for patients to understand the importance of having healthy teeth and gums. What happens in the mouth affects the rest of the body and vice versa. When you improve your oral health, your body becomes healthier; and the reverse is true, too. I want each patient to have the knowledge, tools, and understanding to take control of their health, along with their smile!
I work closely with each patient, to learn their goals and pay close attention to their concerns. The more I know about what the person needs from care, and what worries them, the better experience we can provide. I particularly enjoy helping people who have dental anxiety. Quality, compassionate dental care of the kind we provide means comfort care for each patient!
I treasure the relationship that grows between each patient and myself. I love being able to talk with and learn from them. We all come from different walks of life, with diverse experiences and passions, and our conversations continue to inspire me everyday!
Our team is BEYOND awesome! We have banded together to create a practice that’s welcoming and caring. Each team member really wants to make dental visits a calm and carefree experience.
They are warm, gentle, and compassionate. They are here to help patients make the best of their time and finish visits healthier than when they arrived. Each member of the Greyling Dental Family goes above and beyond to make sure our patients are cared for with each patients individual needs in mind.

Beyond the Practice
I was born and raised in Rancho Penasquitos, right here in San Diego, and was happy to return to my hometown after finishing my AEGD in 2008. I have a loving and supportive husband and together we brought into this world our two greatest joys: our beautiful kids!
When I’m not caring for patients or studying dental advances, I love spending time with our kids at home, at the park, and at Disneyland! I enjoy cooking and teaching my kids to cook is so fun and rewarding! I love watching my daughter play T-ball and never get tired of watching my son’s reenactment of the Maroon Five song “Sugar.” Family is everything and we try to do things where we can enjoy the simple moments and being present in them.
My other passion? Shoes! A girl can never have enough shoes!
