My profession is a vehicle to serve others. In order to treat my younger patients, I have to gain their trust, and from there we become a family. I am proud and humbled by patients who have allowed me to be of service to them for over 20 years.
As a specialist in pediatric dentistry, it is my goal to instill in each child great oral health habits. I love working with children, hearing their laughter, and relieving their fears. I enjoy watching my patients grow from toddlers to young adults with healthy, beautiful smiles.

Outside the Office
I am originally from Oakland, California. I moved to Los Angeles to attend USC’s Dental Program and loved Los Angeles so much I decided to make it my home. John is a real estate specialist in commercial properties. He enjoys the many beautiful locations he travels to while assisting companies to find a new location that will best suit their needs.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love playing tennis, going to the movies, and of course, I love to shop! John and I enjoy dining at the many exclusive restaurants here in Los Angeles. We also love grilled foods, and enjoy grilling many specialized recipes. We live a very healthy lifestyle. Los Angeles is a great city filled with diversity, sun, and fun. I love that we can go from the desert to the sea and to the snow in just a few hours!
I very much enjoy giving back to the community. I am a member of many service organizations, including the Inglewood Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club of Inglewood, and the Palos Verdes Links. All these clubs provide many services to the community and I fully enjoy participating in and being supportive of the community by giving back.
