Q: What brings you the most satisfaction in your work? 

A: I have always dreamed of being a surgeon; I love the challenges that surgery offers. It’s also rewarding to know my work improves patients’ quality of life and enhances their confidence. I am particularly passionate about working on patients with high esthetic demands, treating problems with gums, teeth and bone. My focus is for my work to deliver the most natural outcomes. However, I go beyond the teeth; I want to know what brought my patients to this point and how I can help solve their problems.  Connecting with my patients on a personal level allows me to deliver the most individualized approach to their periodontal care.

Q: What makes you different from other periodontists?

A: I am an expert in esthetic periodontal and implant microsurgery. Microsurgery allows me to work under very high magnification and perform minimally invasive implant and gum grafting procedures. Many patients come to me after previously failing or poorly placed implants have left them feeling hopeless that they will ever regain confidence in their smiles. Together, we find a solution. 

Q: How do you employ new technology to help your patients? 

A: We routinely use Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) to allow for faster recovery by it utilizing the patient’s own growth factors to accelerate healing. Our Zeiss Surgical Microscope provides optimal surgical visibility and clarity with high magnification. We also implement an intraoral scanner for digital planning of all implant cases for the most accurate and detailed outcomes. Lastly, all patients get a 3D Cone Beam scan to allow meticulous surgical planning and visualization of important anatomical structures.
