About

Bio

My general and cosmetic dental practice began in 1986. My practice has grown primarily through word of mouth referral. Over the years we have become known for our honesty, genuine concern, quality of care and service, our attention to detail, single appointment crowns, and cosmetic 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.
