In his own words:
“Dentistry is a totally unique combination of science and art. Each patient presents a unique set of circumstances. It is my job to help individuals obtain and maintain a state of proper oral health that meets their functional and cosmetic demands. I love general dentistry because it affords me the opportunity to perform important oral health procedures, while at the same time, developing lifelong relationships with my patients and their families.”
