I grew up wanting to be a dentist for as long as I can remember. It's what I've always wanted to do. For me, it's my way of helping people the best way I can.


After Dental School at UCLA, I settled in San Diego and started practicing. I got married and had two children, a boy and a girl. My wife and I enjoy hiking, biking, playing golf, and spending time with the family.
