About Your Dentist
"Dentistry is a combination of medicine, artistry, and engineering. Since your mouth is a direct gateway to each system in the body, maintaining oral health is a crucial part of maintaining overall health."
"I strive to establish personal relationships with each of my patients and help them overcome any dental fears they may possess. I accomplish this by offering compassionate, comfortable care with empathy and careful attention to each patient’s unique needs. It is incredibly rewarding to watching a fearful ‘dental-phobe’ transform into a comfortable patient who is happy with their new smile."
