“I chose a career in dentistry, not only to help people stay healthy, but to have a positive impact on their lives. Taking care of patients is my primary focus, whether it is a first dental visit for a child or restoring a patient’s lost smile. I believe patience, compassion, and providing positive dental experiences create a strong foundation for a lifetime.”
