Dr. Peter was born and raised in Southern California. In 2002, he graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Californi of Irvine. Before committing himself to dental school, he took a year off to pursue his other passion for the fine arts. In that year he learned about all different types of art like sculpting, painting, ceramics and drawing techniques.
“As a patient, I know what its like to be in a dental chair. I hated it. That’s why I do everything for my patients I wish was done for me”
In 2007, he graduated with a D.D.S degree from the University of Southern California. After graduation, he was immediately commissioned as an officer for the US Army in Fort Drum, New York. While serving in the Army, he got a chance to blossom under the mentorship of many Army dental specialists. As a result, he was able to cultivate his art of dentistry. His passion for modern dentistry combined with his talent in the fine arts is what allows him to deliver beautiful lasting smiles.
He usually uses his free time to catch up on pending patient cases such as implants, veneers, and crowns but also enjoys spending his weekends with his beautiful wife and children.
