One of her most recent achievements was to receive the prestigious fellowship award by the International Congress of Implantology.
Dr. Pournik’s emphasis on patient comfort, as well as keeping up-to-date with the latest advancements in dentistry, enable her to provide her patients with the best quality of care in the field. She has a wide range of experience in different areas of dentistry. Through hundreds of hours of continuing education courses, she has perfected her skills in many different areas of dentistry ranging from cosmetic to surgical procedures like implant dentistry. In addition, Dr. Pournik believes that, due to her own dental experiences, she can more easily empathize with her patients.
Her approach to treatment begins with a pleasant bedside manner while patiently listening to her patient’s concerns. Then, after a complete and thorough examination, Dr. Pournik discusses her diagnosis with them and provides a complete list of available treatment options.
When she is not practicing dentistry or attending courses, she and her husband, Roger Applewhite, enjoy an active lifestyle exercising, traveling, cooking, and hanging out with their rescued, four-legged, “kids” at home. The couple also understands the value of friendships and make it a priority to connect with old friends as well as making new ones as much as possible. They are also very active in their community as they donate a great deal of their time and resources to mentoring teenage children and rescuing, fostering and placing stray animals.
Special thanks to Roger for supporting me and my staff for the past seven years. Without his help and dedication, I would have not been able to commit so much time to dentistry.
