A San Francisco native named RJ, grew up in Glen Park and graduated with a B.S. in Biological Sciences and a Business Management minor from University of the Pacific. I received my dental hygiene degree at NYU College of Dentistry. There, I was trained to take an evidence-based approach in motivational interviewing while maintaining a patient centered environment. Outside of the office, I enjoy visiting my favorite local restaurants, walking my dogs, preparing for my next marathon or planning my next trip.
