Before I became your surgeon, I was a patient, just like you. I recall how it felt and will treat you the way I wanted to be treated. As my patient, you can expect quality and compassionate care in a relaxed atmosphere.


I have been practicing dentistry since 2006. When I am not working, I enjoy traveling, swimming, and looking for my next favorite sushi restaurant.
