“Our delivery of patient care is a continuum that begins with the initial contact with the office and proceeds through the building of long-term relationships with our patients.”

What is one thing that patients should know about you?

My practice is centered on excellence in patient care. It is not only about using the latest technology to provide superior contemporary and comprehensive care. Our delivery of patient care is a continuum that begins with the initial contact with the office and proceeds through the building of long-term relationships with our patients. Living in an ever changing world brings a lot of excitement to the practice. I belong to three dental study clubs and I am president of one, to keep up with new techniques and technology. Reinventing oneself is most rewarding. Appreciating every day as if it were a gift are my words to live by. At the end of the day, I feel like I have just seen old friends.

What is the biggest challenge in your job?

While we are not contracted by the insurance companies to provide dental services, our office does an excellent job of navigating the benefit levels of our patients’ insurance coverages. Because we are a non-network office, we can provide the patient with a wide range of services and our patients are able to achieve a greater level of health. Most importantly, the patient education of how their dental health affects their general health is an ongoing discussion.

What are your interests outside of work?

It doesn’t get better than watching my family grow up, playing with my grandchildren and coaching and going to the sports events that have shaped their lives. Fly fishing is my Zen. I belong to Trout Unlimited and I am a board member of my local chapter. Preserving cold water fisheries is gardening for the future.
