Upon completion of training, she worked for 12 years as an associate for a large, multi-specialty private practice, where she has treated thousands of diverse patients and then went on to be an associate at other private offices.

Her passion for providing comprehensive care to her patients is only matched by her commitment to lifelong dental education.

When not treating patients, Dr. Happiness loves spending time and traveling with her husband and three daughters, cooking and participating as an active member and leader in her church community. She is fully committed to providing for less-privileged children locally and abroad.
