“Being a dentist, my greatest reward is to see my patient, especially a child, walk away with a smile and feel comfortable about returning.”

As a Beaverton TenderCare Dentist, I graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2000 and joined Beaverton Tendercare Dental team in November of 2001. I enjoy working with the dentists here because we have the same philosophy of dentistry. As a Beaverton TenderCare Dentist, we all treat patients with dignity and offer each dental treatment with the patient’s best interests in mind. We thrive on building lasting friendships with our patients. Also, the friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere is very calming for our patients!

I grew up in China and came to the US with my husband in 1995. We chose to live in Portland because we love the balance between nature and urban living. As a traditional person, family is in the center of my life. I have two school-age sons and my parents are living with us. I spend most of my spare time home with them. I like to take them traveling, to see the world together, and enjoy bonding with my family.
