About Me

Born into a working class family of five, my dad was a union iron worker who taught me to use my hands


First in my family to attend college and first to become both an Engineer and Doctor

Growing up, I loved art. My love for painting, making jewelry, wood carving and ceramics grew into my surgical and cosmetic dentist skills

I've poured my heart and soul into building my dental practice, Floss & Fido, from the ground up, quite literally. I've built the place myself. From every wall of paint to every dental chair you sit in.

I live in a small farmhouse, spend my time driving the tractor and rocking out to music with my three dogs, two birds, two ducks and two tortoises.

My love for animals is why we're Tacoma's dog friendly dentist
