I love making beautiful smiles! Being an orthodontist allows me to help people feel more confident and self-worth. Many patients have said that they don’t smile as much because they are embarrassed by their smiles. These are the situations where I feel honored to be able smile more and make people smile!
Every patient is different. I strive to customize a treatment program that will work for them. I love watching people’s smiles change, their occlusion, and teeth transform from beginning to ending.

I love continuing my education to stay current on the latest research and innovations in this field. It’s good to refresh my knowledge on things that I might already know. It is also exciting for me to learn about new treatment options that I can incorporate into my practice. I am a regular attendee at the Pacific Coast Society of Orthodontists Meeting and the American Association of Orthodontists Meetings. This allows me to give my patients the care they need.

Outside the Office
I’m originally from Southern California but have lived in Seattle since 2003. Outside of work, my time is spent playing with my three very active sons. You can often find me out running with my kids to various sporting activities. I also enjoy reading and going to work out.
