Why Did You Decide to Become a Dentist?
Dr. Nartker knew that she wanted to help people smile from an early age (she even had her mom put braces on her Cabbage Patch doll!). When she was 4, her mother went back to school for her dental hygiene degree. Dr. Nartker remembers this amazing project where she had to make a model of the facial muscles out of clay. Once her mom graduated, she started working for a phenomenal dentist who treated Dr. Nartker. This introduction to dentistry at an early age made her realize that she could create something with her hands that could improve people’s lives, and before she knew it, her path was set.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
Dr. Nartker is a proud graduate of the University of Michigan School of Dentistry (Go Blue!). Since graduating, she has completed many continuing education courses and has been involved with various study clubs to enhance and expand her treatment planning and restorative skills.
Outside of the Dental Office, What Do You Like to Do?
Dr. Nartker is married and has two young children, a boy and a girl. Her days off are all about spending time with her family. They love to go on adventures together, whether this involves hiking in the mountains or visiting a museum or zoo. At home, she likes to cook and try new foods, and she recently started gardening as well.
