You can expect me to conduct an extra-oral (outside your mouth), and intra-oral (inside your mouth) exam. The first step is getting pictures. This will help us customize a treatment plan for you that is specific to your needs.


I was born and raised in Kenya. I have big lungs, so I can run long distances easily. I enjoy cooking, spending time with my family and friends, hiking, biking, traveling, and being outdoors. I also enjoy dentistry, as I believe it is my God-given purpose here on Earth.
