If you could only give one piece of advice to your patients about their oral health, what would it be?
Floss, floss, floss. Many people still underestimate the importance of flossing to our oral hygiene. Brushing is never enough unless you floss everyday too!

In the years that you've been practicing dentistry, what is one of the most significant changes you have seen in the industry?
The efficiency of implant systems. With more mature implant systems on the market, dentists are more equipped to restore patients' smile and occlusal functionality.

The best part of being a dentist is
To see that patient would have an instant relief from pain when treatment is done or be able to smile again when broken teeth are restored.

Who is a person whom you admire greatly, either historical or present day?
My dad. Also as a dentist he showed me what it takes to be a great dentist. Patience, listen to what the patient is saying, and always provide the best care possible. Most importantly, create a relaxing and comfortable environment for your patients.

One of the greatest lessons I learned from my childhood was
Do not procrastinate.

I knew I wanted to be a dentist when
Freshman year at UT. That summer I attended a mission trip to Guatemala with a group of Austin local volunteering health care providers. Included were physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners. During the trip I have found out that dentists not only treat dental pain, but also very easily reconstruct patient's self confidence by restoring their broken teeth and was fascinated by the career.

When I'm not at the dental office, you can usually find me
With my wife and two cat babies watching movies at home or traveling around the globe.
