    I received my dental degree from the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry in 1980 and my prosthodontic specialty training from the University of California San Francisco / Veterans Administration Hospital in 1983. I challenged and passed the examinations to become Certified by the American Board of Prosthodontics in 1986. I also hold a Master's degree in Cell Biology from Purdue University.

Our Personal Lives

And we love our adopted city of San Francisco, with its outstanding Opera, beautiful baseball park, vibrant downtown, and cool fog at home. We thank you for sharing your city with us.
