The reason I became a dentist was to show people another side of dentistry. I wanted to bring a softer side of dentistry, with comfort, compassion, and precision, to everyday people like myself. I want people to get the dentistry that I always wanted to receive. No one goes to the dentist for fun; my goal is to have my office be a safe, pain-free environment where my patients feel completely at ease.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated high school in 1983 and became involved in dentistry by working in the denture lab at UCLA. This built upon my foundation in the arts by utilizing my love of working with my hands.
- California State University at Northridge
- University of Texas at Houston School of Dentistry
My passion in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry led me in my lifelong pursuit of surgical and prosthetic training. I have worked and studied in Texas, New Mexico, and Virginia, and incorporate all I have learned to enhance my practice.
For more than 20 years, I have tried to excel at what I do to become a master at the art of dentistry and all its facets. I want my patients to experience the dentistry that I would insist my family receives.
- American Dental Association
- Virginia Dental Association
- Northern Virginia Dental Society
- American Academy of Implant Dentistry
Outside the Office
Originally from Victoria, Texas, I have lived in Fairfax for seven years. I have an amazing wife, Sarah, and two young daughters, Alexis and Olivia. At home with my family is where I love to be when I’m not in the office, but I take time to volunteer with the MOMS project to bring urgent dental care to the needy.
