Why are you passionate about sports dentistry?

“Sports dentistry holds a very special place in my heart. It gives the dozen or so of us dentists who are vetted by the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee the unique opportunity to support athletes to be the best at their craft while representing our country to the fullest. Working with the Los Angeles Football Club, a Major League Soccer team, for more than three seasons has been an amazing experience, and it continues to push me to be my best and strive for perfection in my career.”


What is your practice known for?

“My team members make visits and conversations enjoyable for patients, which helps us stand out from others. I am fortunate to have a team that is as dedicated to patient health and dental care as I am. My practice is also known for providing a local option for dental care for families and individuals with special needs. My additional training in hospital-based dentistry allows me to serve these families in my dental office.”
