Meet the Dentist
Born, raised and educated right here in Houston, I knew from an early age that dentistry was my passion. Growing up, I always had dentists who were compassionate and caring people. These individuals were inspiring and fostered my interest in the field. I’ve had my fair share of dental experiences—braces, wisdom teeth and more –and was always curious about what was going on, what each tool was and how everything worked together.
While attending Jersey Village High School, I volunteered at a hospital to get my first experience in the medical field. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Houston and was very active with the pre-dental society and health professions club on campus.
I then attended the University of Texas–Houston Dental School in the world famous Texas Medical Center. I graduated in the top quarter of my class and was awarded the 9th District Dental Society Award for Dental Excellence and Ethics. I married my best friend, Natalie, in 2006. We met in middle school, where we played in the orchestra together. We began dating our junior year in high school and have been inseparable since. We have 2 dogs, Kobe and Louis and a cat, Sam.
