I am committed to serving my patients and providing the highest standard of care, while continuing to advance the doctor-patient relationship.
While growing up, my father told me that I should become a dentist because it fits my temperament, and my mother took me regularly to her dentist. After I got into dental school, I examined my mother’s teeth and discovered that this guy was a master! It was not until then that I realized what an influence he had upon me. I liked the whole environment around his practice. All the tools he had and instruments were intriguing! He was very well respected. He made a big difference in patient’s lives. I wanted to do what he did.
Dentistry involves both health and aesthetics. The technology is growing by leaps and bounds! It is totally different than when I first started. There are so many more options! For example, first there were only silver or gold fillings, and now there is a whole list of materials and processes.
By understanding the patient, I can work with each on the best options for them. I surround myself with wonderful people—patients, staff, those I refer to, suppliers. It is an honor and a privilege to be part of this dynamic profession. Beyond every healthy patient is a whole team that contributes. It’s the wonderful organization we have, and the relationships we build, that energize me every day.
