You're probably reading this because you want to get an idea of who I am, and whether or not you should trust me to be your dentist. That's totally fair, and I would advise all of my friends and family to have the same level of diligence you're doing when choosing a health-care provider.
So let's start off with a word that I reflect on every morning.
I'm absolutely grateful to be doing something I love. Remember when you were 10 and had to write that essay on what you wanted to be when you grew up? Well...I wrote down - DENTIST. No joke, I've wanted to work on teeth for as long as I can remember. So without sounding like too cliche, this isn't just a career, it really is a true passion of mine.
I'm grateful to my parents, who may have not had the financial means to support me through school, but had enough confidence in me to co-sign on the absurdly expensive student loan at NYU that I'm still paying for.
I'm grateful for my family for helping me keep it together, because it's not easy being a working Mom. According to my kids, I'm the absolute best dentist in San Diego, and it makes me extremely happy that they want to follow in my footsteps and eventually take over the office. I'll do whatever I can to help them follow their dreams.
Lastly, I'm grateful to the 4,221 patients that have visited us in the last 12 months. You all kept me very busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm committed to keeping each and every one of you healthy, and making sure that your smile gives you the confidence to engage the world.
I'm originally from the Bay Area, but have had the privilege of calling San Diego home for over a decade.
I like to keep up to date with the latest techniques in dentistry, and am proud to be mentored by a group of 50 fellow dentists who are just as passionate about dentistry as I am.
I am an expert in the following areas of Dentistry:
