About Your Dentist
"One of my favorite quotes from a professor in Dental School is, 'You cannot use tooth colored filling material to restore back teeth.'This reminds me that what we hold to be true today might just turn out not to be true tomorrow. Some truths are timeless while others are not. Another quote I like, whether it applies to dentistry or life in general, is "You didn't come this far just to get this far. Keep going."
"As my dental career is concerned, I have a few goals. Id like to be as skilled as possible to provide the most esthetic and functional dental care with proven and predictable longevity. I strive to sincerely care about my patients, sharing in their joys and more importantly their struggles. I aim to never make my patients wait for their appointments. I am never afraid to admit I dont know something andam always fair, honest and joyful."
