Becoming a dentist was the best decision of my life.
If you were around in 1989, you might have been listening to Bon Jovi on your Walkman or catching an early episode of The Simpsons. If you were me, you were starting your career in cosmetic and general dentistry.
As you may know, I grew up in the Seattle area and went to dental school at the University of Washington. After graduation, I set up my dental practice in Woodinville, where I continue to see patients to this day.
Becoming a dentist was the best decision of my life. Even after 25 years, I still get excited by dentistry—learning about new technology and techniques, teaching other dentists, and most of all, helping patients look and feel even better than they could have imagined.
Dentistry has always been my passion, but I never would have been able to enjoy it for so many years without my many wonderful patients. It’s always nice to see your smiling faces, year after year. And it’s especially gratifying to see new patients who come in based on a friend or family member’s referral. I’m truly thankful for your trust and loyalty.
Together with my team, it’s been an honor to serve the Seattle and Eastside communities for almost half of my adult life, and I hope to be doing so for many years to come. I love you all!
