Dr Ana was born and raised in Europe in a Romanian and German family. Early in her life she developed an interest in dentistry, which led her to attending dental school in her home town of Bucharest, Romania. She graduated from Carol Davila School of Dentistry in 1998.
She also completed one year of general practice residency in March 2001, prior to moving to the US the following month. When she first moved to the US, Dr Ana lived in Atlanta while learning English and working as a dental assistant. Her passion for dentistry determined her to return to Dental School in 2003 to earn her American dental degree and dentist license. Dr Ana graduated from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2007.
Upon moving back to the South two years ago, Dr Ana decided to focus her dental practice on children. During her own childhood in Europe, Dr Ana remembers dental visits as a painful and frightening experience. Even the adults were apprehensive about dentist appointments. Her goal is to make a difference by making it easy and fun for children to see the dentist. She provides a safe, friendly and comfortable environment, ensuring a positive experience from start to finish. That way her patients will continue the good habits learned in childhood and become great adult dental patients, who will look forward to dental visits and never experience the “dread of going to the dentist”.
When not treating children in our practice, Dr Ana is committed to using her dental skills in volunteer service to the under served population in our area. Outside of dentistry, Dr Ana enjoys traveling, outdoor activities like riding her bicycle and kayaking, and time shared with loved ones.
