About Your Dentist
"Be true to your teeth, or they may be false to you."
“I believe that proactive education is vital for preventative care and maintaining oral health. I also believe that it is essential to listen to my patients’ questions and concerns so I can fully understand their perspective and most effectively collaborate for a common understanding and a comprehensive treatment plan. A doctor-patient relationship based on honesty and transparency will always result in the most effective strategy for long-term dental health and overall systemic wellbeing.”
