Helping People through Gentle Dentistry
My patients place their trust in me, to provide them with the gentle care that improves their oral health and smile. I take that responsibility seriously and strive to exceed their expectations. Dentistry is not only about caring for teeth: it’s about strengthening someone’s dental health and, in turn, helping their body become healthier.
As a dentist, I have the ability to relieve a patient of dental pain and improve their quality of life. I can also restore function, which allows a person to eat comfortably. And I can make your smile even more beautiful, to increase your self-esteem and confidence.
My staff and I work hard to establish a partnership with each patient. We cannot make a lasting change in a person’s oral health without their participation. By focusing on education and preventive care, and offering plenty of support and encouragement, we help patients develop and keep a healthy smile.
My team is part of my family. Each person has been chosen following a rigorous training and selection. We work exceedingly well together and those connections are reflected in how we care for patients. We’re good-humored and good-natured, with a down-to-earth approach.
Education and Continuing Education
I earned a Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the prestigious Tufts University School of Dentistry in Boston. I’m a firm believer in continuing education: constantly expanding my skills and knowledge.
I have completed hundreds of hours in continuing education in general dentistry and aesthetics, including courses with Pankey institute in Florida. I finished my graduate certificate in oral pathology and oral radiology from USC Also enrolled in three years of Master of the science in oral medicine and TMJ disorder at USC that will grant me MS in TMJ and oral disease. Recently I published my first book of an upcoming series, Concise Guide to Clinical Dentistry.
I am currently serving as Editorial Board Member at Scientific Archives of Dental Sciences.
Oral healthcare is an evolving field. New technologies, materials, and techniques all mean a better treatment experience and stronger results for my patients. By completing continuing education courses, and attending lectures, seminars, and meetings, I ensure I remain at dentistry’s leading edge.
