"I appreciate all aspects of practicing dentistry and especially enjoy interacting with my patients. Everyone comes in with a different situation and I try to inform and educate them of different ways that we can help them while making them feel like more than simply a patient. Comfort and understanding are key components to our patients' visit to our office."
