How long in the Community : Since 2003

Reason that I chose dentistry as a career :

Taking a child who has a sincere fear of coming to the dentist, speaking with them and working with them, resulting in a positive dental experience, is rewarding. I believe this foundation of positive experience can change the outlook on dental visits for a lifetime. I also believe promoting effective preventive measures will ensure a lifetime of oral health.

Board certified by American Board of Pediatric Dentistry since 2002, I am an active member and fellow of American Academy Pediatric Dentistry. I am also a member of American Dental Association, Virginia Dental Association and Northern Virginia Dental Society.  

In my spare time, I enjoy sending time with family and friends, watching college football games and traveling.
