Philosophy of treatment: My job as a dentist is to explain to every patient what treatment options are available and to help each patient make an educated decision based on this information.
It is my goal to be sure that all patients are aware of different options and treatments and to present the pros and cons in each case. I believe in treating people the way I would want to be treated: with compassion, a caring attitude, and quality dentistry. Communication is extremely important in dentistry, and I try my best to listen to and understand my patients’ needs. My staff and I will do our best to make you feel comfortable and we welcome your questions and concerns so that we can provide you and your family with the best dental care.
