About The Doctor
Dr. Mindy was born and raised in Northern Nevada and attended UC Berkeley and Oregon Tech. She went on to earn her dental degree at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine in 2008 where she received the Delta Dental Scholarship and Prosthodontics Student Award for her graduating class. She then completed an optional year of extended training as a General Practice Resident at the Portland, OR VA Hospital where she valued treating patients from a medically complex population.
After completing her residency, she worked at a pediatric clinic in Corvallis, Oregon before returning to Reno in 2010 to serve the veteran population at the Veterans Affairs Hospital. She has been in private practice for the past few years before deciding to open Dr. Mindy’s Family Dentistry.
In her free time, Dr. Mindy enjoys spending time with her husband Michael and their two daughters. She also enjoys skiing, running, and hiking in Lake Tahoe with their dogs.
