I hope to make your experience as smooth as possible. I realize surgery can prompt apprehension, so my goal is to allay your concerns by addressing your questions. I aspire to deliver high-quality care in a comfortable, caring environment.


I have received extensive training in dental implantology, facial reconstructive surgery, facial trauma surgery, oral pathology, dentoalveolar surgery, and orthognathic/corrective jaw surgery. I worked in an oral surgery practice in Sacramento before relocating here. I enjoy checking out the great shows in Vegas, playing tennis, hiking, gastronomy, film, and traveling abroad.
