Dr. G is passionate about teeth and helping patients feel better about themselves and their smiles. As a child she remembers being fascinated with her early dental office visits and peppering her dentist with endless questions. She often requested tours of the dental office and marveled at all the hands-on work she saw being done. She loved visiting her dentist even on days she didn't personally have an appointment. The early spark for dentistry never left her. "I just love teeth", she will enthusiastically tell anyone who asks. Dr. G is now delighted to practice the state-of-the-art dentistry she always dreamed of right here in her hometown.
When she is not practicing dentistry, Dr. G enjoys hanging out with her family which includes her husband Phil, and their two boys, Josh and Eli. They like playing with their dogs, swimming, traveling to new places, and participating in youth hockey. Dr. G has also served as a team dentist for the Arizona Coyotes in previous years and has donated her time and talent to restore smiles for young women in crisis who are working to better their lives.
