How it all began

April 10th, 2018

Ross and I have a lot of patients who are curious to know how we first met and decided to work together. Our “love story” is pretty serendipitous because we lived almost 1,200 miles apart at the time!

Ross is from California and moved to Texas in 2011 for his orthodontic residency program at Baylor Texas A&M College of Dentistry. I was living in Ann Arbor and was midway through my dental school training at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry.

The summer before my third year of dental school, my roommate and I went to Dallas to visit her parents and attend the Michigan vs. Alabama football game at Cowboys Stadium to open the 2012 season. I met Ross by chance on a Tuesday night at a small Dallas restaurant. He overheard my friend and I talking about dentistry, and we struck up a conversation that changed the rest of our lives! He was kind enough to invite me to visit his school since I was getting ready to apply to orthodontic residency programs in the fall. Things blossomed from there, and we started dating! Six years later, we are fortunate enough to be doing what we love together!!  Even though the Wolverines lost that weekend, I won big time meeting the love of my life.

We invite you to visit our office and hear the full story first-hand!
