About

Bio

I have been practicing for 18 years in the specialty of endodontic care. I have had exception and a great variety of training and experience. I can offer patients a very unique combination of care. First the highest quality of care in every aspect of root canal therapy as well as the latest microscopic surgical endodontic treatments. Equally important is my respect and concern for every one of my patients. I expect of myself and my staff to treat each patient as we would like to be cared for ourselves or our loved ones. Root canal therapy can be an experience which evokes much fear in patients. With the aide of the latest of technology and our support, my office will strive to show patients there is no need to be fearful any longer of root canal therapy/surgury.

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.
