Maintaining healthy teeth, gum, and jawbone structure begin from infancy and continues into adulthood. It is essentially a lifelong process of visiting your dentist for routine checkups and cleaning and your orthodontist for specialized care. Children, teenagers, and adults typically see their orthodontist for problems such as overcrowding teeth, underbites, overbites, receding jaw, or protruding jaw.
After attending the University of Paris VII School of Dentistry in Paris, France for both my undergraduate education and my Doctorate of Dental Surgery degree, I continued on to the prestigious Orthodontic Program at Oregon Health Sciences University’s School of Dentistry in Portland, Oregon. During this three year comprehensive Orthodontic Graduate Program, I earned my Master of Science Degree in Orthodontics.
I participate in regular continuing education to keep abreast of the latest techniques in orthodontics available today. My bio-mechanics background coupled with my passion for orthodontics is a winning combination for all of my patients. Participating in classes and seminars allows me to stay current with all of the latest trends in orthodontics to pass on to my patients!
