His training at the UCLA Center for Aesthetic Dentistry under Dr. Ed McLaren from 2001-2003, along with his many travels to the corners of the earth, have served as his inspiration to study the ways of tooth making. With eight years of CAD-based design experience, implementing a workflow that incorporates the latest in CAD/CAM capabilities is paramount to his daily in-lab operations, yet his finish work is always marked by a human touch.
