I graduated from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco in 1979.Subsequently, I started and ran a successful cosmetic reconstructive practice in California for over 20 years. I was a client and later a volunteer instructor at The Pride Institute, a nationally known dental practice management firm in the United States, for many years. In 2000, I sold my dental practice and moved to Europe, where I was an associate dentist for Multiclinica Medefi, a private dental clinic in Lagoa, Portugal. I worked there until 2010. In 2004 I started Dental Solutions Europe, a dental practice management company in association with The Mastery Company.
Between 2011 and 2013, I worked for the American Dental Clinic in both Abu Dhabi, UAE and Muscat, Oman in the Middle East.
In February 2013, I accepted a position with Aspen Dental where I am the Managing Clinical Director of their Roseburg, Oregon facility.
While clinical dentistry is a passion, I also enjoy new challenges. It gives me great satisfaction to share my knowledge (both clinical and business-based) with colleagues.
