"I love being an orthodontist. Every day I feel rewarded to have made a difference in my patients' lives."
— Dr. Sesame
After more than 20 years working as an orthodontist, I still genuinely enjoy what I do. Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people, and each of the friendships that I've built with my patients and their families is one in a million! It has always been my focus to make each patient feel at home when they come to me for treatment, and I work hard to give my patients the attention they deserve.
My education in dentistry and orthodontics has provided me with a strong, well-rounded foundation of knowledge and experience. Before becoming an orthodontist, I received the following education:
- B.S. Degree, Biochemistry, University of Oregon
- D.D.S. Degree, University of Washington School of Dentistry Orthodontics
- Specialty training and certificate in orthodontics, University of Washington
- Masters in Business Administration, University of Washington
By participating in continuing education courses year-round, I am able to stay current with the latest technology and orthodontic treatments. My patients deserve the best, and continuing education allows me to provide my patients with more options and better results. I am a member of the University of Washington's Continuing Dental Education program, and several professional associations, including:
- American Board of Orthodontics
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Washington State Dental Association
- University of Washington Alumni Association
Commitment to the Community, and my Family
I am blessed to be part of such a wonderful community, and I believe strongly in giving back to those who have given so much to me over the years. Every year, I work with local charities and non-profit organizations to host fundraisers and to sponsor various events.
Even when I am away from the practice, I am still surrounded by happy, bright smiles! I enjoy spending most of my free time with my wonderful family. We like being outdoors, hiking, skiing, and camping. I also enjoy cooking, dining out, and shopping. Seattle is great city filled with so much diversity, and I look forward to getting to know you and your family.
