I’ve had a strong work ethic my entire life, and I knew growing up that this would greatly benefit me no matter which career I chose. The field of dentistry was very interesting to me because it would allow me to enhance patients’ smiles and their self-confidence. I went on to earn my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Then, while completing my general practice residency at a Veterans Administration Hospital, the head of the department recommended that I enter the endodontic program at UCLA.
“I’m glad I took this advice, because I immediately knew this was the dental specialty for me. I liked the precision and technical skill required of root canal therapy and other endodontic procedures. Today, I find it personally and professionally rewarding to be able to help preserve my patients’ smiles using today’s most innovative endodontic procedures and technologies. Since opening my practice in 1992, I’ve performed over 20,000 root canals and have always prided myself on patient-first care. My staff and I will treat you with the kindness and respect you deserve… every step of the way.”
