During my fourth year in dental school, I traveled to Guatemala on an externship. We were in a town with lots of children in need of dental care. It was on this trip that I decided I wanted to work with children. Helping these kids get through a difficult experience and ending with a smile on their face was the most rewarding feeling I have experienced. I love it when a child tells me he or she loves the dentist. It tells me I am doing something right.
I am a southern California native. I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. After graduating, I continued with my education in Washington D.C. at Childrens National Medical Center, in affiliationwith George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Treatment modalities are always evolving, and I try to stay up to date with all the latest technology, products, and procedures. I stay current by reading medical and dental journals and earning 30 hours of continuing education a year. I lend my time to various educators, parent groups, and other doctors and dentists in the area to help them learn how to care for children and their oral health.
