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

"I take pride in providing the highest quality comprehensive dental care in the most gentle manner possible!!"

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Some of the more common procedures I enjoy doing Bonding - A procedure in which tooth-colored material is used to close gaps or change tooth color. Contouring and reshaping - A procedure that straightens crooked, chipped, cracked or overlapping teeth. Veneers - A procedure in which ultra-thin coatings are placed over the front teeth. Veneers can change the color or shape of your teeth. For example, veneers have been used to correct unevenly spaced, crooked, chipped, oddly shaped or discolored teeth. Whitening and bleaching - As the term implies, whitening and bleaching, a rapidly increasing procedure, are used to make teeth whiter.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

People choose esthetic dental procedures/surgery for various reasons—to repair a defect such as a malformed bite or crooked teeth, treat an injury, or just improve their overall appearance. Whatever the reason, the ultimate goal is to restore a beautiful smile and that is what I enjoy the most.
