Dr. Rutsis brings a unique set of skills and talents, drawing on advanced training in whole-body health and wellness. While attending the prestigious College of William & Mary, she earned a dual degree in Kinesiology and Psychology, while also serving as team captain of the collegiate running team. She learned early on, the powerful connection between mouth-body health.  Following college, she decided to pursue dentistry, earning her Doctoral of Dental Surgery degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry.


As the daughter of a widely respected dentist and educator in Richmond, Virginia, Dr. Rutsis grew up witnessing the value of doctor-patient relationships, community service, and lifelong learning. Throughout the years, she and her dad led numerous mission projects together, providing compassionate dental care to underserved populations.  It was through those shared experiences that Dr. Rutsis developed a deep and genuine passion for serving others. Dr. Rutsis values life long learning and makes it a priority to attend a number of continuing education classes each year. In her free time she enjoys spending quality time with her family, home cooked meals, fishing with her husband, running, and staying active outside.
