Planning your dental care to last a lifetime.
Perfection is my passion! I am dedicated to restoring the oral cavity towards an optimal environment. In order to achieve success, I begin with motivational interviewing to make proper treatment plans that lead to shared desired outcomes between the patient and myself. Prevention is my goal, and I educate and treat my patients with a ground-up approach. This method involves taking care of the patient's foundation by examining the periodontium and sinus, all the way up to the occlusion. My thirst for knowledge is forever growing, so I can provide the utmost treatment for my patients.
