"I care about my patients and their oral health. No one really loves going to the dentist, so I believe part of my job is to make sure patients are very comfortable at the practice. I believe in educating people about their dental needs and overall health so if any treatment is necessary I make sure to explain and show patients the reasons why I am recommending certain procedures or treatments."
