Q: What is unique about your practice?

A: My extended training in advanced general, cosmetic and implant dentistry allows me to create healthy, beautiful smiles that reflect the complex relationship between oral and systemic health. Our sterile air system and chairside aerosol evacuator units that break down any viruses or bacteria to the 0.3 micron ensure that we treat patients in the safest possible environment. Staying at the forefront of digital dentistry with intra-oral scanning, 3D-CBCT, digital X-rays, painless anesthetic and Invisalign, enables me to complete smile makeovers and full mouth reconstructions seamlessly while guiding patients through the process toward an optimal result. The personal and individualized care extended to each patient, combined with our relaxing office environment, fosters a warm, welcoming atmosphere for even the most anxious patient.

Q: What is one thing your patients should know about you?

A: My vision is Inspiring Smiles through a unique, patient-centered experience, providing the highest quality of comprehensive dental care individualized to meet each patient’s needs. I am a perfectionist who is caring, compassionate and always motivated to be better. I value clear communication with patients to explain diagnoses and treatment plans, both short- and long-term, to promote oral health. 

I also love giving back to the community. With our “One for One for One” initiative, patients, simply by tending to their oral health, are giving back, too. For each patient who comes in, we donate a complete oral health kit to a person in need and 1% of their visit to charity, starting in 2021 with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
