I am an east coast native, born in New Jersey and raised in Miami, Florida. I graduated Cornell University with a degree in Biology and a minor in economics. After graduating, I worked in finance in New York for a year before realizing that I wanted a more meaningful career, one that allowed me to improve people's lives. It was then that I decided to remain in the Ivy League and attended dental school at Columbia University, and after graduation continued my education at the top-rated University of California, San Francisco, earning both a certificate in Orthodontics as well as a Master's Degree in Oral and Craniofacial Sciences.
At this point I have been fortunate to have been able to practice orthodontics in California for over a decade. My years of experience in private practice have taught me even more than I could have imagined. Having treated thousands of patients and becoming a Premier Provider of Invisalign I am excited to provide orthodontic care for you at Marin Braces.
As part of my commitment to patient care, I attend various continuing education meetings in order to keep on top of all the latest developments and advances in orthodontics and dentistry. I also lecture to local dentists and hygienists in order to educate them on how best to address the orthodontic needs of their patients.
Every day I am blessed to be able to do what I love for a living. I am proud to offer quality orthodontic care in a boutique setting where I am able to spend ample time with and offer my undivided attention to every patient. I always make sure that my patients and their families understand what we are doing and that they are fully invested in their treatment. I find importance in high ethical and moral standards and have pursued this philosophy in both my personal and my professional life. I have been blessed with a supportive family and an excellent staff. Together we thrive to give our patients a gift that they can cherish for the rest of their lives....beautiful straight teeth!!!
My comprehensive orthodontic services include early interceptive treatment for children, traditional and cosmetic clear braces, self-ligating braces, and Invisalign®. My office coordinates complex cases with other specialists when necessary.
