As a Palo Alto orthodontist I strive to treat all of my orthodontic patients like extended family members; and, I enjoy building friendships and lasting relationships with patients and their families during and after their orthodontic treatment. I am looking forward to providing you with cutting edge orthodontic treatment and, most of all, excellent service. I am here to give you a "Wu"nderful smile!
I enjoy learning about my patient’s interests and hearing about their lives outside of my office. Here is a little information about myself that I would like to share with you! I am a native of Palo Alto, CA; and, I graduated from Gunn High School. In my spare time, I enjoy mountain climbing, hiking, golfing in the Bay Area, and I love to travel.
