Growing up in Silicon Valley with a father who was an orthodontist, my passion for dentistry started at an early age I loved spending time helping at my dad’s office, doing lab work and assisting chairside. I found that I've loved utilizing artistry and science to create healthy, beautiful smiles!
I attended UC Berkeley and received a biochemistry undergraduate degree. I then continued at UC San Diego with a Master’s degree in bioengineering. From there, I went to UC San Francisco for my Doctor of Dental Surgery/DDS degree. I am a proud UCSF dental alumnus and know that my education there provided a firm foundation for the continuing many changes in dentistry.
I dedicate myself to a high level of continuing education that far exceeds what is required for license renewal. My motivation is so that I may listen to my patients’ needs and educate them on their treatment options. Most importantly, though, I value the long-term relationships that my team and I have with our patients.
I strive to understand your health goals so that I can create a custom treatment plan just for you. I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Santa Clara County Dental Society (SCCDS), and a San Jose Spear Study Club. I am a certified Bioclear provider.
