Q: What made you decide to become a dentist
A: I have always enjoyed working with my hands. I had good dexterity and hand-eye coordination from a young age, and I loved woodworking and welding. My uncle owned a dental store, so I grew up around dental materials. Since I was always building something, I thought I might want to be a dental lab technician. But while I was at school, I realized I was too much of a people person not to be working with patients. When I was in the lab, I felt like something was missing. I envied the relationships the dental students developed with their patients. I wanted that.
Q: What is unique about your practice?
A: Despite being a high-tech practice serving a major metropolis, our office maintains a small-town feel. We are a complete dental institute, an all-inclusive oral care practice that conveniently offers the gamut of dental services, including dental implants (including “teeth in a day” implants), veneers, bondings and Invisalign® braces, all under one roof. We are a Diamond Invisalign Provider and member of the Academy of Clear Aligners. Our state-of-the-art facility also serves as an education and training center for other dentists.
Q: What is your top priority?
A: Creating a positive patient experience. Patients’ best interests are at the forefront of everything we do. Ours is a relationship-focused practice built on honesty, integrity and care. Through our co-discovery approach, we spend time listening to each patient’s goals so we can help them make the best, most informed decisions about their oral health.
