Growing up as the son of a dentist, the importance of chair-side manner was instilled in me. My aim is to present my patients with a friendly, pleasant experience while upholding the highest standard of patient care.


I bleed Tar Heel Blue. I am a huge Green Bay Packers fan. My favorite actor is Denzel Washington. My favorite place is Maracas Beach in Trinidad and Tobago.

After graduating dental school in 2014, I moved to California to begin my dental career. As a former Division I NCAA athlete, I am an avid sports fan who still enjoys competing whenever the chance presents itself. I owe all of my success to my West Indian parents.
