ON BEING AN ORTHODONTIST
I have been in the dental field since 1997. Orthodontics is not just about creating attractive teeth. It is also about the way your teeth will bite, chew, and function, for the rest of your life. I will help you achieve a balanced bite for comfortable function, as well as a beautiful smile, with the kind of personal attention you and your children deserve.

In addition to my professional training, I engage in numerous continuing education courses to help me stay on top of the latest advances in orthodontics. This is an exciting time to be in a career of improving smiles, as there are always new technologies and techniques to learn. These advances make us better care providers and give our patients every advantage modern orthodontics has to offer.
I enjoy good movies and, sometimes, bad TV. A great, relaxing day includes sunshine and exploring the open road on my motorcycle. Growing up in Elk Grove, I’m also a rodeo fan. The California Golden Bears are my team, in both football and basketball.
