About

Bio

I have an unyielding concern for providing the best "Dentistry" possible, and to remain up-to-date with any advances/improvements in the changing world of Dentistry. I am very focused on sport-health/nutrition, as I compete in Triathlons, Duathlons, 10k and half-Marathon races. I am we'll adapted to a variety of different artistic mediums: from wire bending/sculpture and framing to rehab of my Victorian town home. My one remaining artistic-objective would be to have published a fiction short story(to be announced!). My Wife and I are proud parents to three- year-old and seven-month-old sons.

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.
