Hello, my name is Gloria. I am certified as a Nurse Practitioner, and I have a Doctorate in Family Practice. I am excited to join Hartman Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and to bring a fresh pair of eyes to the dental medicine world! I love what I do, and I make every effort to deliver excellent patient care, and to make a patient’s visit a relaxed and pleasant one. I enjoy learning new things and staying attuned to the latest articles and lectures on anything from oral pathology and conditions, to radiographic diagnosis, to dental software and equipment. While oral surgery can be a stressful topic for some, I am happy to be a part of a team whose goal is to make you fall in love with your smile again. See you in consult soon!
