      CLINICAL ACTIVITIES:
      I maintain a busy clinical practice at UCSF in the Oral & Facial Surgery Center and the Medical Center. I have clinical responsibilities 4 days per week and also cover call approximately 2 weeks per month. My practice is focused on orthognathic surgery, dentoalveolar surgery including dental implants and bone grafting, maxillofacial pathology, reconstructive surgery, and temporomandibular joint surgery.

      RESEARCH ACTIVITIES:
      My research interests are mainly clinical and relate to surgical technology. I am specifically interested in the use of technology to improve patient comfort, accuracy of planning, and surgical outcome. Currently, we are working on a methodology to computerize all aspects of orthognathic surgery treatment planning in-house.

      EDUCATIONAL PURSUITS:
      I teach OMFS residents at all levels in the clinics, operating room, departmental service meeting, orthognathic treatment planning conference, and the applied surgical anatomy course. Dental students also attend my clinic and operating room as part of their Hospital Dentistry rotation. I am actively involved in teaching them in the predoctoral oral surgery clinic and as a faculty member participating in the Student Dental Implant Program. I also give them formal lectures throughout the year. Medical students also attend my clinic and operating room as part of their elective. I am also involved in teaching general dentists as part of the UCSF CE program.

      I am interested in the use of technology to improve education. One of my goals is to develop an optimal and standardized method of evaluating OMFS residents throughout their residency program.
