“I enjoy most aspects of dentistry, I would say that changing unhealthy smiles to beautiful ones is what I enjoy most. The patient who has been ashamed and can finally smile again! I have a lot of surgical training, lots of CE in implants and truly enjoy restoring them. I am currently a part of a comprehensive care continuum, to offer better comprehensive care to the patient. My core belief in my practice is to treat everyone with the same respect as I would want for my mother. This means that they are treated with respect and not judged by their pocketbook. I work hard to get everyone a treatment plan they can afford to get them to a state of health. I have an outgoing kindhearted personality. I have a genuine interest in people and this is how I treat everyone, the way I want to be treated.”
