About Your Dentist
"Dentistry is one of the most important health professions. It helps patients physically, psychologically and socially. Effective dental care ensures proper function and a healthy smile improves self-image and a sense of self-worth."
I treat every patient like a family member. I will always present the best options for improving the oral health of my patients. I believe in working with my patients in order to achieve their goals and keep them in optimal oral health.

I enjoy water activities like SCUBA, paddleboarding, kayaking, and boating with my sons. I also enjoy traveling, concerts, plays, opera, festivals, 5K's, amusement parks, museums, cooking and volunteering for mission trips.
"I hope to have a positive impact on my patients' lives by providing the absolute best care I can. I want my patients to feel confident that their concerns have been heard and that the best treatment options have been well-explained. I think that the best results come when the patient understands the problem and is part of the decision-making process. Having the opportunity to improve people's health, appearance, and confidence is what I love most about dentistry; to accomplish this, while sharing some smiles and laughs along the way, is what I hope to achieve."
