Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry
Hello and welcome to my page and my practice, Dental Therapy. I am so happy I could be of service providing the best care I know to you and my wonderful patients. I would love to tell you a little about me so you may get to know me a bit better.
I grew up right here in Arizona. I graduated high school in Mesa and later on enrolled at Arizona State University. I completed my undergraduate degree at the College of Engineering and few years later, at the influence of my orthodontist, I decided to enroll back in college. In 2014, I graduated with my Doctorate degree, Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), from Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine in Glendale AZ.
With over a decade in the dental field, time has only deepened my passion for dentistry. I love and take pride in continuously learning, thru Continuing Education (CE), the latest innovations to improve my knowledge & skills to provide the best care for my patients. I have continuously attend CE classes and dental conferences, both locally and internationally in Europe and Central America, such as Dominican Republic and Switzerland. I enjoy reading dental journals & actively participate in multiple dental organizations including American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), International Academy of Biologic Dentistry and Medicine (IABDM), and International Congress of Oral Implantologist (ICOI). I am on my journey to advancing my membership to a full Fellow of the AAID.
I have been practicing both traditional and biologic dentistry for a long time and therefore, offer the best of both practices. This is not a case of 1 size fits all. Knowledge in both practices enables me to customize and personalize every treatment plan for each and every patient. I enjoy educating my patients to their options so that they may make a well informed decision regarding their dental treatment.
Outside of work I love spending time with my family, my 3 grown children and my dog, cook ramen & white rice, gym, eat healthy and watch movies. I love experiencing new things & very recently I’ve taken up kayaking, paddle boarding & hiking. My most favorite so far of the few hikes I’ve done is still Piestewa Peak which is also approximately a mile away from my office looking over the valley and is included in our business logo. I also enjoy traveling to some parts of the world in Europe, North America and Hawaii. I hope to make it again to Central America and explore South America and Asia very soon.
