I dedicate myself to advanced education so I can ensure high quality, comprehensive dental care in a comfortable setting.
EXPERIENCE I am a Punahou graduate who completed dental school at the University of Washington. I worked for several years in Seattle and San Diego before returning home to Kailua in 2006 to start my own practice. Since opening my office, I’ve completed more than 520 hours of continuing education in the fields of laser periodontal surgery, TMD therapy, orthodontics, implants and sedation dentistry, and I also have completed the core curriculum at the Las Vegas Institute of Advanced Dental Studies.
DEFINING CHARACTERISTICS I make sure that our patients are completely comfortable. Through sedation, even the most apprehensive patients report feeling completely relaxed, often sleeping through the entire procedure. They remember very little or nothing of the appointment, and the post treatment discomfort is virtually eliminated. Also, I find it very rewarding to help patients who suffer from TMD symptoms such as headaches and migraines, neck and shoulder pain, jaw clicking and locking, ear congestion, and dizziness.
