Memorable Moment

Celebrating 30 years in dentistry was a career highlight of mine. My staff and I had a great celebration of my 30 years in practice in May 2014. We hosted a continuing education course for my esteemed colleagues at North Ranch Country Club. My special guest speaker was Dr. Steven Sadowsky, a mentor and long-time friend. I am grateful to have worked with and learned from so many talented individuals who have instilled the quality dentistry we provide as taught to us at the U.S.C. School of Dentistry.
