I love orthodontics because it allows me an opportunity to affect the lives of young and old in a positive way. Each patient is unique and presents their own set of challenges. It is that uniqueness that makes every day different and never boring. I really enjoy working with my patients to help create a beautiful smile that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
I attended the University of British Columbia where I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry. I continued on to Boston University, first receiving my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and then my Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Orthodontics.
Continuing education is very important because my patients deserve the best orthodontic care based on the most current studies and research. I am involved in a local orthodontic study club where we discuss current topics in orthodontics, bring in speakers, and review challenging patient cases. I also attend continuing education meetings in Vancouver and throughout North America to keep up-to-date on the newest techniques and technology related to orthodontics.
My team is a dedicated group that cares about making our patients’ experience at our office as pleasant as possible. They treat each patient as an individual and try to get know each of them on a personal level. We all share the same philosophy of providing top-quality care with honesty, respect, and compassion.
