My profession allows me to continue to provide comprehensive dentistry to multiple generations of patients in a well-respected practice started by my dad more than 50 years ago. For my young patients, I strive to bring them into the dental environment with safety and comfort in order to provide them with the confidence and trust for a lifetime of dental care.
My relationships with my patients and staff really are the most important thing to me — dentistry is the easy part! My approach has always been to see my patients as individuals first. I love to hear their stories and learn about their life journeys and interests. They are what make my work rewarding and what I look forward to every day.
Following graduation from UCLA School of Dentistry in 1996, I completed my general practice residency at the University Medical Center here in Fresno. I proudly joined my father’s practice and have led it since 1997, to carry on the tradition my dad began more than half a century ago. The children my father saw in his early career are now parents, and I am fortunate to continue to care for their children and watch them grow and develop.
I believe that staying on the cutting edge of dental technology and advances is the key to successful interactions with patients. I also believe in integrating dental practices with environmental responsibility by reducing waste and using environmentally and biologically friendly products and materials as much as possible.

Outside the Office
I am a lifelong resident of Fresno, where I am surrounded by my family. I am passionate about getting outside in nature, mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, skiing, camping, and on the beach. I enjoy the feel of wood and granite, cannot live without music, and an avid reader of non-fiction.
