I wanted to be a dentist from my early teens. That was my goal. I graduated from high school as the class valedictorian, then went on to study as a pre-dental student at UCLA majoring in biochemistry. I was thrilled to next enter the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry, where I graduated at the top of my class, and then continued a post graduate internship in advanced education and general dentistry.
I have had the great pleasure of running my dental practice in Santa Monica since 1997. I feel blessed to have such wonderful patients and I continue to try to provide them with the highest quality of painless dentistry possible. To me my patients are my extended family. I treat each one with the utmost attention, care, and compassion and have made sure that all my staff and specialists have the same philosophy. Our office has a uniquely relaxed and warm and efficient atmosphere--which our patients often remark on. This is the kind of practice I always envisioned--even way back in those teenage dreams. I invite you to read the biographies of my superb colleagues. I am extraordinarily proud of the work they do and the sophisticated yet wholly humane practice we run together.
In July of 2016, I was named to the Advisory Board for an incredible organization, Face Forward, Inc.. They do incredible work with helping battered woman recovery physically and mentally from the abuse that they have experienced.It is my absolute privilege to be able to work with such a fine organization. I look forward to working with Face Forward, Inc. and putting my all into the cases that I handle. I'm also looking forward to working with my good friend, Deborah Alessi, for this great cause.
