I love my career, and my patients. The interaction between me and my patients give me the drive for my job and I absolutely love meeting all the people that walk through our doors. I simply enjoy meeting new patients, getting to know them, and ultimately providing the treatment that they want. I am lucky to be able to use the talents I have to interact with such amazing people.
I grew up in Southern California and obtained my undergraduate degree in just 3 years from USC. Even while finishing early, I graduated at the top of my class. I continued my studies at The University of Southern California to finish my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. During my tenure there, I fell in love with the surgical and more complex cases including Oral Surgery and Cosmetics where upon graduation I was hand selected by the faculty to receive 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 laid roots at my own practice at Elevate Dental.
I continue to better my dental education knowing that my pursiut of learning has allowed me to stay ahead of my peers and thus give our office an edge over other offices to provide custom, personalized treatment plans beyond what other dentists are able to. I expanded his 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 my friends and family and my dog Jericho. I enjoy hiking and regularly hike trails in the San Gabriel mountains, Malibu, and San Fernando Valley. I enjoy finding new adventures and outdoor activities. Another passion of mine is photography. Some of my photos can be seen in the office during your visit.
