About Your Dentist

The ability to impact a patient's oral health and, therefore, his or her overall health, for the better is truly rewarding. Moreover, having the opportunity to shape smiles that are the cornerstones of confidence is a great blessing."

My Mission

I have made a lifelong commitment to learning in order to remain updated with the latest evidence-based research in dentistry and advancements in technology to provide superior care to patients. Furthermore, I strive to give back to my local community and help with access to care efforts in the field of dentistry."
