“Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.” ´╝ŹRichard L. Evans

I consider myself truly lucky to be in a profession where I can make a lifelong impact on children’s oral health from a very young age. It may take more patience, love, and tender care to build a trusting relationship with a dentist, but nothing is more rewarding to the patient, the family, and myself when we achieve a healthy smile together. My goal is to bring positive dental experiences to the children and provide them with a heartwarming dental home.

My Education and Continuing Education

I graduated with high distinction from the University of Toronto, and continued my dental education at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Dental Medicine. Outside of school hours, I volunteered at community centers and took on leadership roles in school organizations to bring dental care to patients with limited access to dentistry in the city of Philadelphia.

Since I’ve always enjoyed treating children, I decided to further continue my education in paediatric dentistry. I completed the residency program at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, where I expanded my knowledge and skills in working with children at all levels of dental and medical complexity.  Even today, I am committed to keeping up to date with the latest scientific research in paediatric dentistry. 

I am fluent in Chinese Mandarin and Japanese.
