About Me

I am a dentist specializing in maxillofacial prosthodontics, head and neck cancer and maxillofacial prosthesis. I received my dental surgery education at Loma Linda University and completed my residency in prosthodontics at the University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio, with a certificate in maxillofacial prosthetics at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. At the OSUCCC – James, I serve as the director of Maxillofacial Prosthodontics. Since 2015, I have been named as a top dentist in Columbus by Columbus Monthly.

My research focuses on a variety of topics, including dentures, maxillofacial prosthodontics and dental management of patients with head and neck cancers. I have presented my research across North America, and it has been published in numerous journals, such as the Journal of Radiation Oncology. I also serve as member in the American Dental Association, the American College of Prosthodontics, the Ohio Dental Association and other organizations.

At The James, I have the best resources available for my patients. From new technologies and research methods to experienced medical professionals, I have the tools and support to offer individualized treatment to each of my patients. By educating my patients and treating them effectively, I share in achieving our goal of a cancer-free world, one patient at a time.
