When Dr. Rachel isn’t busy telling kids her jokes, she can be found fighting the battle against sugar bugs, aka cavities. She grew up right here near Pensacola in a small town called Byrneville. She graduated from Northview High School and still reminisces on the glory days of softball champs and homecomings. She acquired a biology degree at the University of West Florida, graduating with honors. She went on to graduate from the University of Florida (GO GATORS!) with a Doctorate of Dental Medicine followed by two additional years of training in pediatric dentistry. She worked as a pediatric dentist near the University of Florida for a while before finally realizing there's no place like home!
Needless to say, Dr. Rachel is not your ordinary pediatric dentist. She believes an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and stopping cavities before they even start is the best way to keep her patients happy and healthy! Dr. Rachel’s specialty training involved growth and development of an infant through adolescence. She believes recognizing conditions that can affect development of teeth and jaws are integral to oral health and overall health. She is a board certified pediatric dentist and stays up to date on the newest and best technologies in dentistry to keep your child safe and healthy. She can't wait to meet you!
