Born in Vietnam. 2nd oldest of 6. Total number of pictures for family of 8 until I was in college: less than 36. Realized at age 20 art of seeing my surroundings in more detail: photography and biology.
Fascinated with how biology, dentistry, and photography are closely tied together. Above picture says it all. I try to recreate nature (your teeth) with precision to match its intended function. After all, photography is trying to recreate a moment in time.
Dental degree from University of the Pacific in 2000. Y2K bug did not affect all school records before that. Have a compulsion to apply high technology to treating patients. Discovered that patient care can benefit from going paperless and forever archived. One of the first offices in Davis to use digital x-rays. Got into CAD-CAM dentistry before 3-D printing became popular.
Favorite part of dentistry. We have the potential to get rid of cavities for good though modern research. Our closest solution: Carifree Treatment.
Love simplicity and a good cup of coffee. Total number of pictures of my four kids: 50,000 give or take.
