I am so happy to be a dentist! I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to build relationships, educate the community and grow as a person each day in my profession at Paramount Dental Center.
Education and Continuing Education
For my dental education, I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery from the University of Washington School of Dentistry. I completed my dental education with knowledge of the most advanced technologies and methods in dentistry. Because my profession changes constantly and being a true professional means continued learning and growth, I always stay aware of emerging dental advancements. As part of my continuing education, I regularly participate in educational courses and clubs to improve and grow my skills. I am a graduate of the world-renowned Kois Center for Advanced Dental Education, as well as the Esthetic Professionals Comprehensive Dentistry Study Club.
In the Practice
I love doing dentistry, plain and simple. I feel that I am playing rather than working when I am taking care of your teeth. The first time you walk in our Kirkland or Seattle dental office door, you will feel the friendliness of the people in the practice, and it is my goal that you always feel welcome. My team gives me an opportunity to have a fantastic time being a dentist day in and day out. Our patients show their commitment to us by coming in year after year, and we are committed to always providing the highest quality services for them.
Although I was born in Manila, Philippines, I have lived in the Seattle area for most of my life, and I love it! I have two children named Caleb and Leah. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching the news or sports, and reading. I also enjoy cycling and have completed the Seattle to Portland bike ride three times!
This profession has given me a chance to give back to the community. I participate in different community fundraising, but my favorite is charity, especially water. Each month, we donate to this great organization whose mission is to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet. I also serve as an affiliate professor at the University of Washington School of Dentistry. I enjoy sharing my knowledge and experience with dental students to aid their clinical skills in restorative dentistry.
