I’ve spent over 20 years in my profession and I still love it! I enjoy helping people, discovering their personalities and hearing their stories. Coming to my office is a joy each and every day!
I started my career in medicine at California State University, Northridge earning a Bachelor of Science in Biological Science. After graduating in 1987, I moved to San Francisco to attend the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. At the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry is where I joined the American Dental Association and the California Dental Association, before graduating in 1990 with a Doctorate in Dental Science. From 1990 to 1991, I performed my General Practice Residency in Hospital Dentistry at UCLA.
Part of my responsibility as a dentist is to attend courses in continuing education in order to ensure that my patients are receiving the absolute best services available. I find these seminars very fun and exciting! I am always learning something new, and enjoy change and progressing my practice forward into the future of dentistry.
As part of my continuing education, I completed a 2 year mini orthodontic residency and am now a Preferred Provider for Invisalign. I am presently working to become Board Certified in Esthetic Injectables; i.e. Botox and facial fillers.
I love dentistry because I find that people are unique and exciting. I love their individual idiosyncrasies and hearing about their families and dreams. I also enjoy the second family of my team. I appreciate the individuality that each member of my staff brings to the table to form a great cohesive working team. The sheer volume and quality of work that we can get done together is amazing.
My team is fabulous. Each in their own right is very talented, hard working and totally focused on what’s best for their patients and our practice. We strive to make each person happy and comfortable while visiting us!
My husband and I have built our lives in the Santa Clarita Valley. We’ve raised three beautiful children who have received a great public education in our schools. They are now adults, one has graduated and the other two are in college.
We are now empty nesters who are spoiling our two Rhodesian Ridgebacks by taking them hiking, for walks and to our Central Park community concerts.
