"Dentistry was my career choice because I enjoy working and creating with my hands. I combined this with my love of art and the constant challenge of combining the science of dental medicine with the artistic use of materials available to dentists. Since dental school and my specialty training in prosthodontics, it has been my passion and joy to help others who are dentally and medically compromised. I enjoy seeing significant transformations in my patients’ oral health as my efforts, along with constant support of my staff, come to fruition."
