“The changes in dentistry since I began practice have been huge. The advent of cosmetic dentistry, wonderful, new life like crown materials, implants to replace a missing tooth and to help stabilize dentitions in patients who have been unfortunate to lose some or all of their natural teeth, has brought a change to the way we treat patients today. “
My philosophy of the Practice of Dental Medicine is to help every patient learn and comply with oral hygiene requirements and to build and maintain a beautiful and healthy smile. The goal is to maintain oral health throughout their life times. The effect of a healthy mouth transfers to health throughout the body. A mouth that is not healthy will effect major organs in the body.
I aspire to educate my patients and make them comfortable with the treatment process. I am always available to my patients. Their comfort and well being are paramount to my practice of Dental Medicine.
