Growing up in Silicon Valley with a father who was an orthodontist, my passion for dentistry started at an early age. My sisters and I loved spending time helping at my dad’s office, doing lab work and eventually assisting chairside. From an early age, I found that I’ve loved utilizing artistry and science to create healthy, beautiful smiles!
I have a biochemistry undergraduate degree from University of California at Berkeley, a bioengineering Master’s from the University of California at San Diego and my dental DDS degree from the University of California at San Francisco. My philosophy is life-long learning, having taken multiple courses and workshops from the Pacific Aesthetic Continuum-Live, Spear Education Center and Faculty Club as well as the Bioclear Learning Center. I am a Certified Bioclear dentist, having completed the multiple training courses in the Bioclear Method at the Bioclear Learning Center.
I dedicate myself to a high level of continuing education that far exceeds what is required for license renewal. My motivation is so that I may listen to my patients’ needs and educate them on their treatment options. Most importantly, though, I value the long-term relationships that my team and I have with our patients. I strive to understand your health goals so that I can create a custom treatment plan just for you. I am a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), Santa Clara County Dental Society (SCCDS), and a San Jose Spear Study Club.
