About Your Dentist
"A smile is the light in your window that tells others there is a caring, sharing person inside." – Denis Waitley
“I want to provide lifetime care for my patients. I believe prevention is the key component of the best dental care and it begins by creating meaningful and lasting relationships with my patients and their families. I feel that it is important to meet every patient wherever they are in their dental health journey. Often this means educating patients on all the available options to them, giving my recommendation and then helping the patient decide on an approach and timeline that works best for their lifestyle and budget. It is important to me that my patients understand I am here as an advocate for them and my ultimate goal is to help them along the way toward obtaining and maintaining great dental health. I love the fact that dentistry allows me to build long-lasting relationships with my patients and their families. These relationships are the driving force in everything that I do.”
