After twenty–seven years as a dentist, I have treated thousands of patients and I continue to enjoy helping people. When I’m bringing a smile to the face of a young child, placing a nervous patient at ease, or simply giving someone a healthier and more beautiful smile, I know that I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else. I have seen my patients grow from children to adults, from daughters to mothers, from first graders to college grads–and nothing is more rewarding than treating them and their loved ones with the same care I treat my family.”
