The interaction between my patients and I drives my love for dentistry. I absolutely love meeting the people who walk through our doors, getting to know them, and ultimately providing them with the best treatments and services. I feel lucky to use the talents I have to interact with such amazing people.
Growing up in SoCal, I obtained my undergraduate degree in just three years from the University of Southern California and graduated at the top of my class. I also completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery there, and during my tenure, fell in love with the surgical and more complex cases including Oral Surgery and Cosmetics. Upon graduation, selected by faculty, I received the top award sponsored by the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons.
After receiving my degree, I practiced as an associate in Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Bakersfield and surrounding areas, eventually finding my niche in Encino and laying roots at my own practice, Elevate Dental.
I strive to better my dental education, understanding that my pursiut of learning allows me to stay ahead, and thus, gives Elevate Dental an edge over other offices to provide custom, personalized treatment plans. I expanded this grasp on general dentistry to include implants, veeners/lumineers, invisalign (invisble braces), sedation (for the fearful patient), cosmetic crowns and fillings, lasers and much more.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my dog, Jericho. I regularly hike trails in the San Gabriel mountains, Malibu and San Fernando Valley and love finding new adventures and outdoor activities. Another passion of mine is photography—some of which can be seen in the office during your visit.
