About Your Dentist

Life & Hobbies

“Growing up, I developed a severe under bite, which impeded my ability to properly chew food with my back teeth. When I started college, I made the decision to undergo double jaw surgery to correct my bite. Dentistry changed my life by offering me a brand new smile that not only looked beautiful, but also functioned properly. My goal is to continuously provide exceptional dental care that will change the lives and smiles of all patients who trust me with their dental care needs.

I am a nature lover. I enjoy hiking, traveling and exploring new places by immersing myself into new cultures, scuba diving, and spending quality time with my family and my dog, Winston Churchill.”
