I am honored to practice at Glen Park Dental, in such a great community of San Francisco. As a dentist, my focus is on prevention, and I strive to help educate my patients as a tool to help them overcome potential long-term dental issues. I believe that the best care begins with a patient who is equipped with all the information necessary to make decisions. Working alongside my patients, I help them reach their individual oral health goals.
Solid Educational Background:
I attended Santa Clara University where I studied Biology and Dance. I found my passion for dentistry after serving on a dental mission trip, in which I discovered that I could combine my artistic side with my desire to serve others as a healthcare professional. I attended dental school at the University of the Pacific’s Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry. During this time I lived in Glen Park and am happy to call Glen Park my home now. While in dental school, I was a Tau Kappa Omega and Omicron Kappa Upsilon honor student. My approach to dentistry is a continued desire to learn, and I remain committed to staying up to date on the latest dental techniques and procedures in order to provide the highest quality dental care.
After dental school, I completed a yearlong general practice residency at VA Sepulveda in Southern California. I was able to take an interdisciplinary approach to dentistry, working alongside the medical team to treat my patients and give them the best care possible. I loved my time there because it reinforced my values of treating the patient as a whole, connecting each patient’s oral health to their overall health. I was able to gain experience in oral surgery, implant placement, periodontal therapies, and endodontics while working with our veterans.
As a board-certified dentist, I am a good standing member of the following organizations in the field of dentistry:
- California Dental Association
- American Dental Association
- San Francisco Dental Society
When I am not working, you may find me dancing, baking, hiking, or spending time with my family.
I am excited to meet new patients and work together to help them achieve a healthy mouth and thus, a healthier body.
