I have been practicing dentistry since 2001, and am grateful to be part of my patients' lives. I love providing them with a warm and comfortable dental experience. I consider each patient as part of my dental family, and will only provide the highest quality treatments for each person. My husband and I welcome you to our practice!

Education and Continuing Education

For my dental education, I graduated from the University of the Pacific Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco. I am continually educating myself on the most innovative and proven dental methods so I can ensure that my patients will always receive the best care possible. As part of my dental studies, I achieved my Invisalign® Licensure, which allows me to give a beautiful, straight smile to a patient who has crooked and rotated teeth, without braces!

I have also taken advanced courses in implant dentistry, giving me the ability to replace broken or missing teeth with implants. This enables the patient to not only have a fuller smile, but to chew their food with comfort. I also take seminars and courses as an active member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the California Dental Association, and the San Francisco Dental Society.

In the Practice

As a dentist, I enjoy creating relationships that produce positive health changes. I truly care about the people I serve, and want them to attain optimal oral health their entire life. I continually bring advanced dental techniques to my patients so they can rely on me for the most effective and comfortable dental treatments.

I know that my patients come to me to take care of their teeth and gums, but they also want a great dental experience. My team and I provide experience and technical knowledge, but we are also compassionate and sensitive to the unique needs of each patient. I love living in San Francisco, and am honored to serve the people and families who live here.

Family and Community

I grew up in San Francisco, and enjoy raising my daughter Joie in this great city. When I am not at work, I love to walk through Golden Gate Park with my family, or snowboard throughout the peaks of Tahoe and Canada. I also enjoy remaining active with many of my childhood friends and friends throughout my educational career.

I consider it very important to serve those most in need, and am proud to have served in a dental mission on Mercy Ships in Western Africa. My husband and I have treated hundreds of patients in Monrovia, Liberia, in 2007, where three dentists typically provide dental therapy to more than three million people.
