Being a prosthodontist gives me great purpose and the opportunity to make a difference in each patient’s life. Interacting with all kinds of people, from so many different backgrounds, has made me great at understanding people and broadened my understanding of the world.
I am most passionate about restoring a person’s happiness and confidence in their smile. Many people in my care have experienced struggles in their lives, which have led them to suffer from major dental issues. Being able to give people a smile they love, and to see someone smile openly and confidently after years of feeling ashamed of their teeth, gives me the greatest fulfillment.
I strive to address all of a patient’s true concerns and needs, and to exceed their expectations. It is an honor to be able to carry out each person’s treatment with their full confidence and comfort, knowing they trust me and are happy to be my patient.
