Meet the Dentist
Dr. Chris grew up in the California suburb of Walnut and obtained his Bachelor’s degree at the University of California, Berkeley. Thereafter he earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry and completed his General Practice Residency/Oral Surgery Internship at the Los Angeles County + USC Medical Center. Although Dr. Chris likes both the bay and Los Angeles areas, he identifies best with the community in Laguna Niguel.
Dr. Chris is a 4th generation dentist and while he likes to uphold tradition, his mission is to bring comfort and sophistication to dentistry to streamline the experience for the patient while using modern and contemporary treatment and techniques. This experience is enhanced by Dr. Chris’ application and approach of multidisciplinary comprehensive dentistry offering all aspects of treatment. He also participates regularly in continuing education seminars and advanced training courses to stay on the leading edge of dentistry.
When Dr. Chris isn’t in the office, you can find him in the community or trading in his white coat for a pair of mouse ears hanging out with Mickey Mouse and his friends at Disneyland and spreading the knowledge of good oral care as the “Disneydentist.” Dr. Chris also likes to dabble in foreign languages and photography, so you might just find yourself chatting en français or posing in front of the lens. Come say “Bonjour” to your new smile!
