Growing up in Mobile, AL, Dr. Schrader always knew that she wanted to work with children. She gained hands-on experience working as an assistant for a pediatric dentist in Richmond, VA, for a year following her graduation from the University of Virginia with a bachelor’s degree in biology. It was during her job there that she fell in love with educating and establishing relationships with patients, and that experience solidified her decision to become a pediatric dentist. She attended the University of Alabama in Birmingham for dental school and completed a pediatric dental residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.
Dr. Schrader has been practicing in Raleigh since 2010, and in 2013 was thrilled to have the opportunity to be part of Dr. Riccobene’s first pediatric dental practice. It has and continues to be a wonderful experience for her as she continuing to build relationships with patients and their families. Outside of the office she spends time with her husband and two little girls and enjoys traveling, trying new restaurants, and outdoor activities.
