My passion is to create beautiful smiles and I am committed to providing my patients with the highest level of personalized care in a respectful and fun atmosphere. The great part about being an orthodontist is that I get to meet wonderful people and make a difference in their lives.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry (U.O.P.) in San Francisco with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery (D.D.S.) and was inducted into Phi Kappa Phi, Omicron Kappa Upsilon and Tau Kappa Omega National Dental Honors Societies. I also received my Master of Science in Dentistry (M.S.D.) and Certificate in Orthodontics from University of the Pacific and received the highest scholarship award in my orthodontic residency.
I took part in orthodontic research in Craniofacial Research Instrumentation Laboratory (C.R.I.L.) for seven years at the University of the Pacific. I practiced both general and pediatric dentistry for several years before I decided to specialize in orthodontics. I enjoy teaching and was a member of the faculty at the University of the Pacific.
