Thank you for taking the time and visiting our website.

I would like to  introduce myself and provide you with some information about myself. I was born in Hong Kong and have  lived in the Bay Area since 1971.  I am married with twins, a boy and a girl. My dental schedule keeps me quite  busy but my twins keep me even busier. I like to spend time with my family on my "rare" day off just having fun and being with them. My dental philosophy is to care for the patient and not the "tooth".  What makes our dental office different from the "others" is that you will always feel welcomed and never pressured in doing treatment that you do not want or not ready for. If you decide to come visit our office and allow my staff and myself to care for you and your family , you will know that this philosophy holds true for the entire office. I am a firm believer in education, which is why  I constantly "update" myself so that my patients will have the most up to date care. I practice what is commonly known as "Neuromuscular" Dentistry ,where , the mouth is a "part" of a whole and not just a whole in its own. I have taken extensive training in Ortodontics, TMD/ TMJ , Dental Sleep Medicine, Dental Implants, and Cosmetic Dentistry. Give our office a call today and find out if complete dental care is right for you. Thanks for taking the time and  allowing  me to introduce a little about myself.
