Philosophy of Dental Care
"I believe strongly in the doctor-patient relationship, preventive care and oral hygiene education. To me, it is important that patients want to take care of their teeth. My goal is to help patients learn the importance and value of keeping their natural teeth healthy for as long as possible. When patients enter into a plan of treatment, they are making a commitment to a higher quality of life through dental health. I am here to help."
