After years of practicing general dentistry in Boston, I began my career in pediatric dentistry with residency training at the University of California, Los Angeles. Following my tenure at UCLA, I began building my pediatrics practice in West LA while also serving as Clinical Faculty at UCLA Children’s Dental Center. I currently practice in the San Gabriel Valley at InStyle Dental with Dr. Brian Kar, an excellent clinician and talented cosmetic dentist. In addition to private practice, and serving as Clinical Faculty at UCLA, I am also a member of the Craniofacial Cleft-Palate team at the Orthopaedic Hospital in Los Angeles.
“Prevention is the key to a healthy, cavity-free life”
My role as a pediatric dentist is to help children learn healthy habits and to give parents the education, tools, and motivation needed to care for their child’s oral health and well being. I strongly believe in prevention and my goal is to empower my patients and their parents with the knowledge they need to live healthy, cavity-free lives. It is a privilege to serve as an expert, advisor, and confidant to my patients and their parents.
When I am not caring for kids, I am enjoying the outdoors with Toby, my friendly yellow lab.
