Orthodontics means everything to me. I love creating beautiful smiles, not only because they are functional and healthy, but also because they will make a lifelong change in my patients’ self-esteem. I enjoy getting to know my patients on a personal level during their treatment. It makes me feel engaged with my community and everyone in it. I live here in Yorba Linda. My kids grew up here. Our family is part of this town.
I enjoy mountaineering, backpacking and hiking. I’ve led climbing teams to the summits of more than 480 peaks in the Sierra Nevada’s, the Rockies, the Cascades and mountains in foreign countries. My greatest mountaineering achievements were climbing the Matterhorn in Switzerland, Aconcagua (the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere), and Mt. McKinley, the highest peak in North America.
