Healthy teeth and a beautiful smile have always been very important to Dr. Ara. Growing up, she knew she wanted to be in a healthcare field, and dentistry just drew her in. It was a perfect combination of her love of a healthy smile and passion for the sciences. At first, she was very interested in becoming a hygienist, but after spending some time in the field visiting dental offices, she realized she wanted to be the dentist. She was drawn into how much of a difference a dentist could make to someone's smile. Ever since then, she has strived to treat every smile like it was her own and to provide the best care possible.Read More
