Education and Continuing Education
A native of Oregon I attended South Salem High School. In 1981, I graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in General Science. I completed my dental training at Oregon Health Science University where I graduated in the top of my class with a doctorate in dentistry in 1985. I earned my specialty degree in Orthodontics and Master of Science degree in Dentistry from Indiana University in 1987.
Regularly attending continuing education courses allows me to stay current with the latest advancements in orthodontics. Positioning myself on the forefront of research and technology is one of my priorities. This benefits our patients in a variety of ways - from improved clinical diagnosis to more accurate and safe treatments.

Outside the Office
I currently reside in Lake Oswego and have enjoyed almost 25 years of living, working, and raising my family in this wonderful community. I have two young adult children, Erika and Amanda, and a Chihuahua named Lulu who occasionally visits the office.
In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy staying active by running, playing golf, cycling, and boating. I sponsor numerous events in the Lake Oswego/West Linn area that include Relay for Life, Concert in the Park, The Lake Run Children’s Tent, Rotary Club, Boys & Girls Aid Society, Lake Oswego Foundation, and most school sports programs.
