Life & Hobbies
Dr. Bertolet is an Indiana native, having grown up in the small town of Trafalgar. At a young age, she told her parents that she was going to be a dentist and she never changed her mind! At first, her interest in dentistry seemed random, but after undergoing orthodontic treatment in middle school, she became more and more interested in dentistry as a career.
She spent a wonderful four years making lifelong friends at Indiana University in Bloomington. Dr. Bertolet studied abroad in the Dominican Republic between her sophomore and junior years of college, and this experience sparked her interest in Hispanic culture and the Spanish language! Now fluent in Spanish, Dr. Bertolet likes to keep her skills fresh by traveling to different Spanish-speaking countries.
She also loves to spend time at home with her husband, Forrest, and her two Aussiedoodles, Murphy and Maui. In her free time, she loves to go hiking with the dogs, work out at the gym, and play soccer. She even likes to model when she gets the chance. Dr. Bertolet is new to the Columbia area and can't wait to make friends and explore her new home!
