Loving kids since he himself was a kid, Dr Chris at an early age wanted a career that involved children. He also enjoyed science and working on art projects.

Dr Chris is board certified by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and has co-authored several scientific articles in the dental literature. Dr Chris has been in private practice in the Bay Area since 2005. He is grateful for being able to serve the Peninsula’s children from his Palo Alto office since 2010.

Office Manager

I am a New Mexico native who fell in love with the Bay Area. In 2005 I received my certification in dental assisting from Pima Medical Institute. My previous work in both dentistry and banking has been very helpful in allowing me to help families navigate the wild world of dental insurance. In my free time I enjoy spontaneous adventures such as skydiving, horseback riding, kayaking, and hikes.
