The people I care for bring life to my dental practice. I interact with them, keep them healthy and perhaps change their lives. When my patients return for preventative care I know that they understood my concern for their future health and the path to maintain it. I feel the reward of sharing their experiences with me. I share their joy of a special occasion and celebrate with them a new birth in the family. There are also times when I feel the sadness of one of them passing away. These are the reasons why I love caring for them.
In order to offer the best care possible continuing education is a must for me. The new techniques, materials and hands on courses developed are meant to improve health care which makes we practitioners obligated to understand and utilize them. My early education was done at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree, then a Doctor of Dental Science Degree four years later. To prevent less restorative problems I have spent over 20 years in orthodontic procedures and in recent years implant placement and follow up treatments. I have been in all facets of dental study clubs and have taught orthodontics to other fellow dentists. I have been involved with school and adult screening and performed voluntary treatment for underprivileged children. I have maintained my membership in many dental organizations such as the American Dental Association, American Orthodontic Society, American Association of Cosmetic Dentistry, International Association for Orthodontics and the American Academy of CAD/CAM Dentistry.
The dental team that works with me is simply the most caring people ever assembled. They have all combined, over a hundred years of knowledge in the dental field. It feels like family caring for family.
