Extensive work experience in the production and service industries reflects a wealth of technical and communication skills.  I have taken time before, during and after college in order to experience diverse ethnicities and different cultures.  I have traveled extensively in Latin America, Asia and Europe.  Drawing upon this depth of knowledge and experience as well as my dental education at Columbia University, I plan on providing the highest degree of quality as a dental caregiver and one that through warmth, charisma and teamwork brings fortune and happiness to my patients, colleagues and myself throughout my dental career.
