I will treat your child with the utmost care and compassion. I aim to make dentistry more fun and less stressful. My goal is to have every child leave the office with a smile on their face!
As a pediatric dentist, I am most excited about the little bundles of joy I see every day. My little patients’ wit and purity excite me and push me to be at my best energy to help them feel at ease and comfortable when they are in my chair.
I think it is essential for parents to be involved in their child’s dental care and provided with information and support as they help their little one develop good habits. By learning a parent’s wishes, and always respecting your concerns, we create a partnership: this helps children grow up with happy and healthy smiles.
Kids can be very unpredictable and fun, and each makes my day more interesting. They can be more challenging than adult patients, but that’s a challenge I deeply cherish and love. Nothing beats winning a child’s trust, and with that their genuine smiles and impromptu hugs!

It is crucial to stay up to date with the latest advances and innovations in dentistry in order to provide the best treatments and products to our patients. Through continuing education, including meetings, lectures, and seminars, I learn from the leaders in pediatric dentistry. These gatherings are also a great place to meet up with former colleagues and meet new ones: We exchange ideas about patients, staff, and running a successful pediatric office.
I make the most of continuing educational opportunities locally, regionally, and nationally. My favorite CE course is the SWSPD Ski Conference. This is a week of education and snowboarding/skiing: a true definition of work hard, play harder! The conference covers a wide range of pediatric dentistry topics with some of the most renowned and knowledgeable dentists and medical doctors in pediatric dentistry.
I am an active member of the:
- American Board of Pediatric Dentistry
- American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- Nevada Academy of Pediatric Dentistry
- California Society of Pediatric Dentistry

Through these organizations, I have access to the latest information on research and developments in pediatric dentistry.
