Quote

My practice philosophy emphasizes teamwork. As your provider, it is my job to facilitate your education and acknowledge your needs to ensure a successful surgical intervention and outcome.

Favorites

As a kid, you would always find me with a well-worn copy of Where the Red Fern Grows. Now, I enjoy satirical humor like Catch-22. I also spend perhaps too much time diving into the Star Wars universe.

Volunteer/Service Experience

Dental Mission Trip to Honduras, Give Kids A Smile, Volunteer at Community Dental Center

Biography

I was born in Brazil and grew up in Guam. On the island, my parents owned a chocolate shop, so naturally I developed a phobia of dentistry. I have since overcome my fear and have worked in dentistry since 2013.
