“I value the importance of listening to my patients’ goals and concerns and pride myself on catering to each individual’s unique oral health needs.”

What is one thing patients should know about you?

I will always have time to answer their questions. I am interested in my patients as people first, and as patients, second. I truly care for them and am constantly striving to be better. I am committed every day, to my patients’ health and wellbeing; it is extremely gratifying when I can exceed their expectations. I value the importance of listening to my patients’ goals and concerns, and pride myself on catering to each individual’s unique oral health needs.

Dentistry is one of the most amazing professions. I have wanted to be in this profession since I was 6 years old and my desire never wavered. Every day, we have the opportunity to positively impact someone’s life. I firmly believe there will always be a place for caring, competent dentists. My practice features a vibrant, exciting staff who enthusiastically take care of our patients every day.

How do you employ new technology to help your patients?

From radiography to fabrication of dental restorations to treatment planning, this industry is constantly evolving with the rapid pace of improvements in “digital dentistry.” We make sure to stay in tune with the latest developments.

The most important aspect of dentistry is communication. We are able to display X-rays and intraoral photography on large, high-definition screens, to help patients see and understand their dental needs. It is also extremely important to manage patients’ anxiety about pain. I use a remarkable anesthetic device called, “the Wand,” to provide virtually painless and highly effective anesthesia.
