I am an east coast native, born in New Jersey and raised in Miami, Florida. I graduated Cornell University with a degree in Biology and a minor in economics. After graduating, I worked in finance in New York for a year before realizing that I wanted a more meaningful career, one that allowed me to improve people’s lives. It was then that I decided to remain in the Ivy League and attended dental school at Columbia University, and after graduation continued my education at the top-rated University of California, San Francisco, earning both a certificate in Orthodontics as well as a Master’s Degree in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences.
At this point I have been fortunate to have been able to practice orthodontics in California for over a decade. My years of experience in private practice have taught me even more than I could have imagined. Having treated over 5,000 patients and becoming a Premier Provider of Invisalign. I am excited to provide orthodontic care for you at Pleasant Hill Orthodontics.
As part of my commitment to patient care, I attend various continuing education meetings in order to keep on top of all the latest developments and advances in orthodontics and dentistry. I also lecture to local dentists and hygienists in order to educate them on how best to address the orthodontic needs of their patients.
Every day I am blessed to be able to do what I love for a living. I am proud to offer quality orthodontic care in a boutique setting where I am able to spend ample time with and offer my undivided attention to every patient. I always make sure that my patients and their families understand what we are doing and that they are fully invested in their treatment. I find importance in high ethical and moral standards and have pursued this philosophy in both my personal and my professional life. I have been blessed with a supportive family and an excellent staff. Together we thrive to give our patients a gift that they can cherish for the rest of their lives….beautiful straight teeth!!!
My comprehensive orthodontic services include early interceptive treatment for children, traditional and cosmetic clear braces, self-ligating braces, and Invisalign®. My office coordinates complex cases with other specialists when necessary.
We will strive to improve and enhance the lives of our patients through quality orthodontic treatment. The care that we provide will give our patients a sense of self confidence that will enable them to achieve the most life has to offer. Every patient will receive optimal orthodontic care through the use of the best materials and meticulous attention to detail. We will remain at the top of our profession through our dedication to furthering our skills with continuing education. We will always treat each other and our patients with respect and dignity and we will hold each other to that standard.
