I was born and raised in Chicago and have lived in and around the city most of my life. After completing my undergraduate studies at Santa Clara University in California, I returned to Chicago and graduated Northwestern University Dental School in 1981. My 38 years of experience I bring to my patients has enabled me to perform both complex and basic dental procedures efficiently and with beautiful, long-lasting results. I believe that informing and educating my patients is the foundation of developing a trusting and long-term relationship that will lead to a lifetime of dental health. The interaction, involvement, and cooperation of my patient develops an empowering and caring relationship that leads to successful decision making. My judicious use of current technology and methods makes a visit to the dentist less apprehensive and painless.
With over 1000 hours of continuing education, I am able to use state-of-the-art materials to restore teeth to their natural function and appearance. I look forward to helping my patients whether it’s a basic filling, complex cosmetics, or full mouth rehabilitation. I have been performing dental services like bonding, porcelain veneers, and implant restorations since the 1980’s. I am licensed in both Illinois and California. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, golf, snow skiing, and yoga.
