Dentistry is an incredibly challenging and rewarding profession. Being able to provide great-quality work while making patients comfortable is a wonderful feeling that makes all the hard work it took to get to this point worth it. Establishing lasting relationships with patients and being a provider they can trust and rely on is highly rewarding.
Education and Experience
I recently graduated as chief resident of the Adult Dental Service at Bellevue Hospital Center, where my advanced general practice residency training focused on fixed and removable prosthodontics, implant surgery/restoration, and cosmetic dentistry. Previously, I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UCLA and my Bachelor of Arts in molecular and cell biology at UC Berkeley.
I take pride in using the latest technology to provide the highest quality of work possible, while providing a friendly and comfortable dental experience. Staying current on the latest in dental research enables me to live up to this standard. I am currently in the California Academy of General Dentistry’s Mastertrack, in addition to being an active member of the:
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Academy of General Dentistry
- International Congress of Oral Implantologists, fellow
Outside the Office
I grew up here in Fresno, where I now live with my wife Anna and our Golden Retriever puppy. When I’m not at work, I enjoy playing a round or two on the golf course, going to the skate park, or hiking in the mountains. Of course, I cherish every moment I’m able to spend with family and friends.
