About

Bio

I am a general dentist involved in reconstructive, implant, orthodontic and cosmetic dental procedures. I routinely manage treatment for patients with complex dental disorders. I am known for being relaxed and very compassionate with my patients. We have many patients with us for more than 20 years.
