About Your Dentist
"My mission is making patients smile. Whether it is getting a patient out of pain, restoring a troubled esthetic area, or giving a patient the ability to eat again - providing a patient with confidence and functioning teeth, in any capacity, is such a reward. It makes all of the past and future hours of training worth it."
