Quotes

“I feel very fortunate to have practiced as a general dentist with the varied array of restorative treatment plans, including implants, as I was granted invaluable experience that can only be learned hands-on. It has allowed me to gain perspective and insight into dentistry beyond periodontics. My philosophy is to provide patients with proper treatment in a complete and conservative manner. I believe treatment should be no more than is needed and no less than is essential.”
