About

Bio

I have been practice for 16 years. I enjoy practicing general dentistry. What set me apart from my piers is that I truly care for my patients and explain the diagnosis and course of treatment so my patient can understand and maintain their oral health as best as they at home.

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.

Thanks for asking!: Topical anesthetic like baby oragel over the counter may give temporary relief. Try cool pacifiers or pain meds like tylenol (acetaminophen) or advil.

No: Any antibiotic cannot cure a toothache. Antibiotics can only help reduce infection, hence reducing pain. This is a temporary cure.

NO: Generally teeth can be sensitive to normal temperature foods/liquids. Extreme sensitivity occurs due to other issues such as gum recession, decay, or grinding your teeth.
