About

Bio

We believe very strongly in preventive dental medicine. "Less is More!!!" The least amount of man-made materials placed into your mouth the better. As such, we are very conservative and believe that each patient should have all the choices presented to them that modern dentistry has to offer. Together, doctor and patient, we will decide the best course of treatment taking into account your individual set of circumstances.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
