I enjoy establishing long-term relationships with my patients and helping them get the care they need. Periodontics has a high impact on systemic health, so I am thankful for the opportunity to educate and treat patients with complex periodontal problems.
Outside the office, I enjoy working out, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I am also involved in dental missions and donate my time and expertise through community service.

I am a third-generation dentist. My passion for periodontics led me to complete specialty training at the University of Southern California in 2015, and I have been working as a clinician, dental educator, and researcher since then. I am married to a brilliant prosthodontist, and we have a wonderful daughter.
