Dr. Chris is a San Jose native who grew up surrounded by a multi-generational family of whole-hearted dentists. Although he began working as a dental assistant for his aunt’s practice at the early age of 15, he decided to pivot and pursue a fulfilling path in firefighting. He always knew he wanted to build a life that was centered on serving others. Little did he know that his time working as an emergency medical technician and fire advisor would help prepare him for a medical career in dentistry down the road. A new passion was ignited when he discovered the surgical side of caring for smiles, and his love for dentistry bounced back in full force.
Dr. Chris earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the Universidad de La Salle, and continues to sharpen his skills as an active member of the Santa Clara County Dental Association, California Dental Association, and American Dental Association.
Today, Dr. Chris couldn’t feel more grateful to deliver the highest levels of care as your Campbell dentist. Named after his greatest inspiration, Kobe Bryant, Dr. Chris created Vino Smiles Dentistry as a place where he can make a lasting positive impact in the lives of his patients–just like Kobe did for him. His warm personality and unshakeable ambition to give his community nothing but the best propels every aspect of his care. He loves being able to uplift the people who walk through his doors, providing transparent guidance and forging real friendships built on trust.
Outside of the office, Dr. Chris enjoys nothing more than cherishing time with his family. He’s a loving husband to his wife and a proud #GirlDad to his newborn daughter! A fervent Lakers fan, you can also catch him keeping up with all things NBA and shooting hoops on the basketball court whenever he has the chance.
