A lot can be said about a smile. It’s one of the first things people recognize about you and it’s something that can bring a whole new dimension of confidence and self-esteem to your life. My goal is to work with you in a professional, relaxed atmosphere and help you achieve a vibrant, healthy smile that we’re both proud of!
I wanted to start and say how excited I am to be back in MT and join Dr. Young Han and the H2 Orthodontic team! They have welcomed me with such enthusiasm and kindness. Working alongside them has been amazing, and I look forward to continuing to provide quality orthodontic care to the wonderful people of the Flathead Valley.
Education and Experience
I was born and raised in Great Falls, MT (a lot windier than here!) and went to college at Montana State University in Bozeman. While working toward my bachelor’s degree in cell biology and neuroscience, I used my spare time to provide tutoring services for the university in chemistry, physics, and biology. I also helped run the student labs for the physics department. I’ll always cherish my time at MSU, and I have fond memories of Bobcat football games and powder days up at Bridger Bowl.
After graduation, I moved to Minnesota to complete my dental school training at the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry in Minneapolis. While working toward my Doctorate of Dental Surgery, I volunteered my time providing dental services at the Union Gospel Mission in St. Paul, Indian Health Service in Bemidji, and Common Hope dental clinics in Guatemala. I graduated with highest distinction and was inducted into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honors society.
After dental school I decided to stay in Minneapolis and received both my orthodontic certificate and my Master of Science in dentistry from the University of Minnesota. This training provided me with a solid foundation of knowledge and expertise in orthodontics as well as experience using specialized technology that has become a foundation of our profession.

Outside the Office
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with friends and family outdoors. I love to ski and I’m so excited to explore Whitefish Mountain in the winters to come! Some of my other hobbies include golfing, wakeboarding, and photography. If you see me around feel free to say hi!
