I have a true passion for caring for people. As an orthodontist, I create positive changes in the lives of my patients, and during the treatment process we form friendships.
I love watching the transformation that occurs with each patient. Whether I’m caring for a child, teen, or adult, they gradually become more confident in their smile. With that confidence, they become more outgoing and comfortable talking and laughing with people. They walk a bit taller. Best of all, they smile broadly and happily.
Every day is new and different: I see new patients, teeth, and situations that need to be figured out and solved. The challenges are great, and the rewards are greater.
My Education and Commitment to Continuing Education:
Bachelor of Arts, Pomona College.
Doctorate of Dental Surgery, University of the Pacific.
Certificate in Orthodontics, Oregon Health Sciences University.
Orthodontics is a constantly evolving field. With new technologies and treatments being perfected, it’s essential I remain current. Attending local and national conferences, and participating in orthodontic study clubs, ensures I am always up-to-date. Wanting the best for my patients is core to who I am; continuing education lets me provide them the best care.
