Tanika is originally from Northwest Indiana and moved to North Carolina in 2012. She grew up in a large family and is the youngest of 7 children! She has 11 nieces and nephews and enjoys seeing them as much as possible. Being part of a large family encouraged her to work in a family practice where she loves to make people feel welcome and at ease. Outside of dentistry, Tanika is an avid photographer and loves spending time with friends and family. She enjoys traveling to new places and is a member of The Summit Church where she is a regular volunteer with the Summit Kids program.
