Originally , I was born and raised in Upstate New York (Rome). I attended University of Buffalo in New York my Freshman year in college. Re-located to California summer of 1977. I worked and attended Cal Sate Fullerton. I received a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. Next, I went to UCLA Dental School from 1981-1985. I then re-located to Orange County and worked one year as an associate in private practice. After promising myself to start my own practice after one year from graduation, I began my own private practice in Santa Ana. I worked in that practice for the next twenty years. I decided to move closer to home, so in 2005 I re-located my practice to Newport Beach. My next adventure is to join practice with Dr Nazir. I am excited and looking forward to this new adventure. This move will enhance my current practice by expanding hours and offering a much broader spectrum of services.
However, the accomplishments I am most proud of are my five children. Family is the most important part of my life. They give all my other accomplishments much more meaning. I promise to treat every patient as though I am treating myself and my own Family. Whenever I am treatment planning a patient that does not have clear cut treatment options, the question I always ask myself is : What would I do if it were me in the chair? At that point, the suggested line of treatment usually becomes much clearer. I look forward to seeing everyone in our new office.
