I am a private practitioner of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery. My practice has an out-patient focus and has been present in San Diego for over 20 years. I hold both dental and medical degrees and licenses in the state of California. My office consists of a caring team of trained professionals who have a personal commitment to provide quality care while being dedicated to education and support of patients in a comfortable family oriented environment. By applying constant and never-ending improvement to achieve these goals, we create enrichment and fulfillment in life.I personally believe in promotion of health and feel that it is important to maintain both physical and mental health to be able to provide the best care to my patients. I am an avid cyclist, runner, hiker, and enjoy crosswords. I also have a thirst for knowledge and support lifelong learning and education. I like to provide opportunities for family and colleagues. I also feel it is important to be a mentor and contribute to society via volunteer activities and leadership positions.
