“I’m driven to provide the best care possible for my patients, and believe a lifetime of quality dental care has a tremendous impact on a persons’ overall wellness and quality of life.”
My first three years of college were spent working toward a BS in Microbiology from the University of Washington in Seattle before being accepted to their dental school one-year before most applicants. I graduated from the University of Washington-School of Dentistry in 2005, and now serve as an affiliate clinical faculty instructor overseeing 3rd and 4th year UW dental students.
I have been at Meridian Dental Clinic in Kent, WA since I obtained my dental license. As part of my devotion to the practice of dentistry, I have taken nearly 100 hours of CE every year as part of my professional development. The course topics have ranged from technical, biologic, and scientific aspects of dentistry, to practice and personal development. My lifetime goals are to run an outstanding practice and be a leader and mentor of my peers.
Both of my parents worked in education, so being able to serve as a teacher and mentor at the Dental School allows me to carry the family tradition. I’m also one of the official team dentists for the Seattle Thunderbirds hockey team. Outside of the profession I enjoy traveling, watching sports, and staying very active playing soccer, golf, running, and weight training.
