B.A. in Biology, UCLA

D.M.D., Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Class of 1999.

Over 20 years of experience as a dentist.

What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

I take a detailed medical and dental history, discuss present dental issues and expectations, take all necessary X-ray images, perform detailed exam and cleaning, then propose a comprehensive treatment plan.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Find a dental professional whose philosophy, treatment approach, and personality connect with your own.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

I find every day of my professional life a learning experience and every patient a teacher who can show me something new. This inspires my passion for dentistry.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Natural-looking crowns and fillings. Implant-retained crowns and dentures that stay in the mouth. Custom in-person shade-matching.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

Once I gave a patient an implant-retained denture, and after he left, his wife called me to thank me because the patient was able to eat ribs and apples right away.

Other times, patients have cried and hugged me because I gave them back their ability to smile.

What makes your practice stand apart?

We are fluent in English and Chinese and have a multi-cultural staff so we are able to communicate with and serve a broad base of patients.

What should patients know about your pricing?

We are transparent about our pricing and will obtain insurance pre-estimates for patients prior to any treatment.
