I became an orthodontist because of the impact that orthodontics had on my life. Growing up I was an awkward teenager and did not like my smile. That changed when my braces came off because I was proud and confident about my smile. I want to share that life-changing experience with all of my patients. Witnessing what a difference my work, effort, and sincerity have on the lives of those I care for makes my days fulfilling.
After studying Biomedical Engineering at the Johns Hopkins University, I trained in dentistry at UCLA and completed my orthodontic training at the Baylor College of Dentistry in Dallas. In order to ensure that my patients benefit from the best, most efficient, and proven treatment methods, I pursue continuing education through professional meetings, conferences, lectures, and literature. Committed to the highest level of excellence, I have subjected myself to additional testing and peer review to become board certified by the American Board of Orthodontists.
Outside the office, my wife and I enjoy cooking together, watching movies, and spending time with our three young nieces, Sophia, Monica, and Olivia, and our dog, Starfox. We also attend the Watermark Community church. I am also a loyal fan of the Cowboys and Mavericks.
