Positive Office Experience: I truly enjoy working as a dentist and being part of a patient focused team that is hardworking and compassionate. One of the most important parts of being a dentist for me is making sure my patients understand their dental health and what options they have to improve their health at home and in our office. My goal is to reduce patient fear by explaining how and why treatment is needed. I love sharing my knowledge and skills with all my patients.
