I’m so excited to be a part of this practice and serving this vibrant community!
Everyone has made me feel so welcomed that it feels like I’m already a part of the fabric of the neighborhood, which is what drives my passion for dentistry.
I have spent the last 20 years developing the skills necessary to provide comprehensive care, including:
But at the end of the day, it still comes back to what is the right solution for the person sitting in front of me. That means getting to know the person, not just the mouth.
Oral health is about more than just shiny teeth. It’s about eating whatever you want, when you want; it’s about smiling without covering your mouth. Sometimes it’s getting you out of pain; and sometimes, it’s just about keeping things the same.
A bedrock principle throughout my professional career has always been to focus on the outcome, not the treatment, and that comes down to understanding you and what you want before deciding what is the best treatment for you.
There is a way forward to health and I’m excited to go on that journey with you!
