"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." - Mother Teresa
“My mission is to use today's best technology to provide the highest level of treatment possible. It is important to fully educate patients of all ages and socio-economic levels about their treatment plans, both immediate and long term, in language that is easy to understand. I firmly believe that each patient needs to completely understand all of their treatment options in order to make informed decisions about their oral health care.
My highest priority is to provide quality dentistry to patients of all ages. I understand the need for regular, at-home dental care as well as regular professional cleanings and x-rays. In my experience, the patients that invest time and effort into proper tooth care and maintenance have far fewer problems in the long run. Personally, my favorite services to perform involve cosmetic restorations because smile maintenance is an important factor in everyone’s sense of self-esteem and personal satisfaction.”
