Welcome to my practice! After almost 20 years, I am happier than ever to be an orthodontist, and love coming to work every day. It is incredibly rewarding to not only transform someone's smile but to help in building that person's character and self–esteem. You simply cannot say enough about the value of self–confidence and a pleasing smile is a very helpful step in gaining that confidence.
In order to become an orthodontist, I first attended the University of California in Los Angeles before moving on to Dental School and Orthodontic School, both at the University of Southern California.
Although my formal education is complete, I always keep up with the latest developments in dental methods and technology. This is the best way I know to ensure that my services are the most efficient and comfortable available today. I want only the best for my patients!
Our team is clearly more than a team, they are a family. Collectively they have been in this practice for over 100 years. Yvette, Maria and Angel have been with me for over 20 years each and Paula worked with my father in the practice for several years before I took over. It is always nice to go to an office where the surroundings and the people are familiar.
We clearly love our jobs and it shows! The office environment is professional yet comfortable. There is always lots fun and positive interaction with all the members of the staff and the patients. It is so enjoyable to be a part of our patients' lives. Whether they are young or old, building the relationships and friendships during the course of treatment and in the many years after is a privilege.
