Every day I walk into work, I realize just how lucky I am to be an orthodontist in Washington DC and Stafford VA. It is the greatest job in the world! It took a lot of help and hard work to get where I am today, but the mere fact that I am able to build a personal relationship with each one of my patients makes it worth it in every way. I honestly feel that my patients are really my friends, and I just happen to be lucky enough to be creating amazing smiles for them!
My passion for orthodontics exudes in everything I do. I find it exciting when I see my patients smile bigger and brighter as their teeth are getting into better alignment. I find it extremely rewarding to see someone’s self-confidence grow as they are improving themselves and their smile.

Outside the Office
My time outside the office is spent either running or playing basketball. I am a huge sports fan as well, especially of the Washington Wizards!
Having spent my entire life here in Washington, DC, I owe so much of who I am and what I’ve accomplished to my community. I knew I had people that cared about me. Not just family members, but people in the community who wanted to see me succeed. I had so much help to get me where I am today and cannot wait to give back.
