Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

As a dentist, patient satisfaction is something I strive for. I do my best to help patients be as comfortable as they can be at the office to alleviate any anxiety so that we can form a meaningful relationship where their oral needs are addressed. It is my primary goal to help patients smile and eat to their heart's content without the burdens of oral problems. With the use of intra-oral imaging, I can show patients exactly what is going on in their mouth so they can understand and work towards a healthy smile.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I enjoy treating emergency cases because it is a very rewarding experience to be able to help a patient with their immediate needs in a visit. I understand that dental emergencies can be very stressful, ranging from dental pain to breaking a front tooth, and the ability to help reduce that stress is a service that I love to provide for patients.
