Professional Interests / Specialties:

I chose dentistry as a career because it is a beautiful combination of science, art, and public service. I am most passionate about aesthetic dentistry and restoring form and function to my patients’ mouths. As a first generation American from an economically disadvantaged background, I understand the challenges of obtaining appropriate healthcare. I want to be able to give back to underserved communities, and help bridge the gaps in healthcare, which is the driving force of my dedication to community health. I enjoy what I do and am honored to be a part of my patients’ healthcare team.

Philosophy of Care:

I am fortunate and blessed to have been trained at an institution that focuses on whole person healthcare. In the words of our inaugural Dean, Dr. Jack Dillenberg, at Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health, “Dentistry isn’t just about teeth. The successful dentist needs to understand that the tooth is connected to a person, who is connected to a family, and the family is connected to a community. The dentist must have the skills and commitment to improve the health of each.” This is at the center of my philosophy of care, and I treat my patients the same way I would want myself or my family treated.  

What I love about working at SNAHC:

What I love about SNAHC is that it doesn’t feel like work. It feels like my second home complete with a tight-knit family. We are a team with like minds, values, and a shared passion for community health.
