Not Your Childhood Dentist 

 While I do love saving teeth, I love teaching you how to save your own teeth even more. It's been scientifically proven that your oral health and overall health are intertwined. Let me help you or your clients better understand how lifestyle and habits affect your teeth and health in the long run. As a society we're living longer and longer --wouldn't you love to still bite into a juicy steak at 85? 

Even with all the knowledge available, no-one is perfect, and that's OK. I'm more than happy to assist you, no matter your dental state. Starting with a comprehensive exam, I can diagnose & treatment plan all your necessary oral health needs and deliver them in an enjoyable environment. Don't like your smile? We can discuss that as well. There's many treatment modalities from clear braces to veneers that may be suited for your individual needs. 


 When I'm not practicing dentistry, I love to consult on health literacy projects and diversity & inclusion initiatives. You may also find me on a podcast, traveling across the country, worshiping Jesus Christ my savior, or getting a workout in. It's very important to not only keep our physical body healthy, but also our mind and soul. Put it all together and you got pure Joy.

I am currently practicing at Smile Design Studios in Missouri City, Texas. For more information: www.SDSHouston.com
