About

Bio

I practice general dentistry in Twain Harte, California, after graduating in 1986 from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. I not only enjoy dentistry in Twain Harte but have had the opportunity to share my skills throughout the world, in Tonga, Vanuatu, Mexico, China, India, Cambodia, Belize, Thailand and Peru. I also have had the privilege of lecturing on dental materials, dental techniques and orthodontics in Shenyang, China and have mentored Cambodian dental students in numerous orphanages in Cambodia. One of my current projects is developing cavity prevention protocols in China with hopes of field testing in Cambodia in the near future. My office website is www.twainhartefamilydental.com
