My primary goal is to provide excellent orthodontic treatment in a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. My profession provides me with the unique opportunity to make a positive difference in my patients' lives. I strive towards great results and creating healthy, beautiful smiles!
Education and Continuing Education
In order to become an orthodontist, I completed the following educational programs:
- UCLA, B.S., Biology
- USC School of Dentistry, DDS
- USC School of Dentistry Orthodontic Graduate Residency Program, M.S. Craniofacial Biology
I believe that it is important to keep abreast of the most current orthodontic treatments and technology in order to provide my patients with the best quality care possible. I participate in continuing education classes through my membership in the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the California Dental Association, the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists, the Santa Barbara-Ventura County Dental Society, as well as Invisalign® study clubs.
I love helping people and working with my hands, so orthodontics has been a great choice for me! It is very satisfying to see a shy patient become a confident individual throughout their orthodontic treatment. I love knowing that I have made a positive impact in the lives of my patients!
It is important to me to make every patient feel comfortable in our office. I enjoy watching my patients progress through treatment and see their results, a beautiful and healthy smile that will last a lifetime. I love my job, and couldn't imagine doing anything else!
Outside the Office
I am proud to have been born and raised in Los Angeles, and currently live in Porter Ranch with Bella, my Labrador retriever. In my spare time, I love watching my favorite team, the UCLA Bruins! I also enjoy traveling, working in my garden, and volunteer to perform dental screenings and treatment through my dental society.
