I provide treatment that will improve your overall quality of life. Because gum disease (periodontitis) is not only the leading cause of tooth loss but also linked to systemic conditions, I believe that treating a patient begins with the health of the mouth!


I received both my dental degree and my specialty training from Loma Linda University. I am married to a dentist and expecting our first child! I believe that knowledge leads to understanding, so I like to educate my patients about gum disease and how I treat it.
