About

Bio

My husband and I started our practice together. He has since retired for medical reasons. I enjoy providing family dentistry as well as cosmetic dentistry. We have 2 daughters that are both happily married. My current passions are my grandson Brian and my elliptical. My long term passion is staying current with the advances in dentistry.

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.

Don't: I don't advise doing that. If you truly have a canker sore let it heal on its own. If you break the sore open, you make cause another one to form. If it isn't gone in 10 days see a dentist. It may be something other than a canker sore.

Maybe not: When a person looses a tooth a space is created. You need to see if the space affects how you chew, if the teeth left will be shifting, how your remaining teeth will be affected by adding a new tooth, and the pros and cons of the above. There is no hard and fast rule about replacing a lost tooth. Each situation is different.
A 42-year-old male asked:

Not correct.: It is the muscles around the joint that are in spasm. Just like any other muscle in your body, these muscles can recover. You need to find out why they are in spasm and see what you need to do to correct the problem. A dentist will be able to help you with that.
