"I strive to help people obtain a beautiful, healthy smile with a gentle, comprehensive approach.
I feel a person's smile is their greatest asset."
A Lifetime Commitment
"It was at a young age that I decided to become a dentist. It was my dentists, as an adolescent, who made such positive impressions for my career decision. I have been involved in the dental field for many years, having worked in clinical and research positions before becoming a dentist. Committed to achieving the highest technical skills and techniques from the world's leading educators in cosmetic dental procedures and materials, dental orthopedics, orthodontics and implants, I attend many advanced training courses. This is so I may provide my patients with the best that morden dentistry has to offer."
