Born and raised in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania near Valley Forge, I followed in the footsteps of my parents who were both teachers. I earned a B.S. Degree in Industrial Arts Education, culminating with a year-long apprenticeship as a violin maker.
An unusual background for dentistry? Yes, but the training in engineering drafting, machining, wood working, electronics, graphic arts, jewelry fabrication, foundry, and power technology afforded a dovetailed fit with the skills dentistry requires.
These advantages became clear when I attended Dental School at the University of Southern California, serving as president of the class of 1991. A return to small town life beckoned after graduation with a move to Santa Rosa in 1991, then to Napa in 1996.
Through extensive continuing education, I remain dedicated to offering in-office comprehensive care that allows start-to-finish treatment, a real time-saving, comfortable advantage for patients!
My attention to detailed fit, finish and function provides patients with dentistry that looks good, functions well, and lasts for years to come. Not just fit as a fiddle, but fit better than a fiddle!
Personal interests involve physical fitness, family togetherness through camping, boating, sports, and schooling our three daughters. I am also self taught on piano, guitar, and violin.
