Compassionate Care:

From the moment you arrive, our team is in high gear. Attuned to your needs, your mood, your fears and what it will take to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. Whether you’re in for a routine check-up or a full smile makeover, your comfort is our top concern.

Quick & Affordable Care:

While we’re always happy to see you, we know it can be hard to fit dental visits into your busy day. Teamwork makes the dream work, when it comes to making visits hassle-free and offering patients ways to save money on needed dental treatments.

Expert Care:

Dental care goes well beyond a beautiful smile. Our experts use the latest technologies to test for periodontal disease, oral cancer and other conditions that can impact your overall health and well-being. We’re looking to make your smile shine and a whole lot more!

Interests

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and being active. I love reading and am always looking for new book recommendations.

Personal Statement

I am very passionate about dentistry and believe in patient education so that my patients can make informed decisions when it comes to their health care. I enjoy being a general dentist because I am able to treat an entire family, from pediatrics to geriatrics and everything in between. It is important to me that all patients feel comfortable throughout their dental treatments.

What to expect

We get it… a dentist visit isn’t top of your list of fun things to do. We promise we will make you comfortable, give you our best care, utmost respect, and help you get on with your day. Our offices are brimming with friendly, understanding people who know exactly what you’re feeling. We’re here for you, every step of the way!

You will get a careful oral examination by your dentist, who will check for things like tooth decay, gum disease and other things that can affect not just your mouth, but your overall health. Then you’ll talk together about any treatments you might benefit from.

You may get a teeth cleaning on your first dental visit, or it may be scheduled for a follow-up visit. From start to finish, this first visit will most likely last 1 – 1 1/2 hours so we can make sure we’ve given your smile the attention it needs.
