About

Bio

I am a practicing dentist for 40 years in Van Nuys, California and still love what I do. I enjoy my profession and take new classes all of the time to keep up with Botox in dentistry , Invisalign, Snap on Smile and Sedation dentistry. My goal is to practice as long as I can and provide my patients with beautiful and affordable dentistry. We have two specialists in our practice, an endodontist and a periodontist so all of your oral health needs can be met in one place. We have a great staff and we work as a team to help our patients. I have volunteered my dental services to Children of the Night for the last 30 years. I enjoy going to work every morning andI feel good when I can make a difference in my patients lives and health. I am married and have two grown children and five grandchildren and love golf and pilates and traveling with my wife and friends.
