I want my patients to have fun with me, not fear me. I want my patients to approach me, not with shame or embarrassment, but rather a sense of success and empowerment for facing their challenges head-on. I want my patients to focus on the try part of dentisTRY and try me I think they will be very glad they did!

My Mission

To educate patients regarding the synergistic relationship between oral health and overall wellness. To instill a mindset that prevention is truly the key. To treat people as I would like to be treated; with a genuine heart, authenticity of spirit, transparency, courtesy, warmth, a little bit of humor, lots of laughter, and the utmost of mutual respect and humility.
