Dentistry is more than a career to me! I am as passionate about what I do today as I was over 20 years ago. I feel quite fortunate to be able to come to work every day, and be surrounded by wonderful teammates, and do what I love and do best on people whom I enjoy. I’ve really got it made! In my dental practice, patient relationships come first, and the connection I make with each patient is very important to me. It’s a connection built on trust, respect, and compassion . I believe what I do changes lives, and I cherish the opportunity that life has given me. I support my care with my knowledge of dentistry, my attention to details, and a gentle approach. I strive to stay on the leading edge of implant and cosmetic dentistry. I complete many of hours of continuing education every year, far exceeding the required amount by my profession, and the Dental State Board of California. I firmly believe that my patients deserve the very best dental care possible, and that’s exactly what I am determined to give to every patient. That is my commitment to them.
My Education and Awards
I received my D.D.S. (Doctorate in Dental Surgery) degree from the University of Minnesota in 1991. Several years later, I received my fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry. As part of my post-graduate training, I graduated from the renowned Foundation of Advanced Continuing Education (FACE) Institute, where I have refined some of my comprehensive restorative dentistry as well as bite therapy techniques. I have been the recipient of the Irwin A. Epstein Award from the University of Minnesota, for Excellence in Endodontics.
My Family and My Community
I have been living in Silicon Valley, in the South Bay Area for decades, and love spending time with my immediate and extended family. I am a devoted husband, and a proud father to two fantastic children. For my hobbies, I have enjoyed my favorite game of soccer for about 42 years now, and still enjoy it as often as my work and family responsibilities allow! I do enjoy playing tennis, and occasionally play golf. I have a lot of fun following my local pro-sports teams of Los Gatos Sharks and Earthquakes, San Francisco Giants and 49ers, and my Golden State Warriors. Playing piano and hiking are also among my personal favorites. I enjoy being involved with the local Silicon Valley community, and take pride in working with those individuals who help build and strengthen our community.
