I have a deep, genuine interest in providing quality dental care to each and every one of my patients, and I truly enjoy interacting with them. I have been practicing for more than 45 years and I have had the opportunity to get to know many generations of families. Not a day goes by that I don't feel lucky to be practicing in a field I love.
I attended the University of California Santa Barbara for my Bachelor of Arts in cell biology as well as my Master of Science in biochemistry. My Doctorate of Dental Surgery was earned at the University of California San Francisco in 1976. In 2000, I attended Santa Barbara College of Law to obtain my Juris Doctor degree.
I am a native of San Diego and have lived in Santa Barbara for 45 years. I love to spend time with my wife Erika, our six children, and 12 grandchildren. When I have free time, I enjoy listening to music, being outdoors, and traveling. I have also opened my own coffee shop, Dart Coffee Co., located in the Funk Zone of downtown Santa Barbara.
