Everyone is unique in their concerns, motivations and goals and I am grateful for the opportunity to listen to them and make sure their dental needs are met. My goal is to customize treatment to each individual in a comfortable and caring environment. Visiting the dentist can be a daunting experience so I strive to create a setting where my patients can feel at ease. It is rewarding to me when patients leave my office with a happier and more confident smile.
Prior to dental school, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. I completed my dental training at the University of Pennsylvania and then attended the University of Washington general practice residency program. I have been working around the Puget Sound in private practice for over ten years.
The field of dentistry is constantly changing with many new developments each year. It is important to me to keep up with the latest research in order to provide my patients with the highest standard of dental care. I regularly attend continuing education classes to keep abreast of the latest updates.

Outside of the office
I was born and raised in a suburb outside of Vancouver, Canada. I love to travel and explore new places around the world. I am an avid distance runner and I also enjoy practicing yoga. You will often find me taking part in one of the many outdoor activities that Seattle has to offer or trying new restaurants with friends.
I have always enjoyed spending time in Ballard, be it shopping at the farmer’s market, running through the Locks or enjoying the views of the Puget Sound. I am excited to serve the people of this vibrant neighborhood.
