Creating That Perfect Smile
Dentistry has always intrigued me. Because the mouth enables people to eat, drink, and communicate, it is a profession that can make a major impact on someone’s life. Aside from being involved in various local volunteer and charity events, I feel like dentistry is another way I can give back to the community by caring for my patients individually.
Because my caring orthodontist was so patient with me during the course of my treatment, I wanted to emulate him and provide that same level of care to any patient that walked in my door.
I have lived all over United States, including Texas, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Northern California, but the place I have enjoyed the most is Southern California. I love the diversity and energy of this area.
That is why I am proud to call Orange County home and am pleased to offer specialized care in child and adult orthodontics, dentofacial orthopedics, Invisalign, Invisalign Teen, and lingual orthodontics.
After graduating with honors from one of the top Ivy League schools, University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, in 2005, I completed my orthodontic residency at Tufts University in 2007.
It is a privilege and an honor to be entrusted with providing every patient the highest level of care. Completing hospital externships at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and Guy’s Hospital in London, England, has taught me to be a compassionate, devoted, and patient-oriented professional. Teaching and tutoring students for over 6 years has enabled me to communicate effectively with patients.
I have jumped out of an airplane, climbed Machu Picchu, and dove in the Great Barrier Reef, but the thing I enjoy most is laughing with my patients. I am truly honored to be in this great profession that enables me to still be young with my patients and continuously learn something new each day from them. That’s why I am a firm believer that you never should stop learning.
I live life with passion, and orthodontics is a passion of mine. When I am not practicing and attending dental society meetings/CE courses, I am spending quality time with my amazing wife, daughter, and son. In addition, I enjoy participating in community events, traveling, exercising, hiking, playing basketball, scuba/abalone diving, and surfing. I look forward to giving you something to smile about!
