I am so blessed to be a dentist and interact with my patients every day. From emergency appointments, dentistry for children and adults, or just being able to listen to my patients' expectations when they are seeking dental treatment or smile enhancement, my goal is to provide the best and gentlest dental experience. Dentistry is my passion and with over 12 years of experience in comprehensive dentistry, I can give my patients the smile they always wanted.

Beyond The Practice
My wife and I have lived in Washington DC since 2012. We both like to travel around the world. During the weekends, we like to run around the Capitol and the National Mall.
I volunteered at the Spanish Catholic Center Dental Clinic in Washington DC during my Residency at Howard University, and I was so honored to receive The Ellen S. Flanagan Volunteer Service Award in 2016 from NOVA Community Clinic in Virginia.
