What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I specialize in a variety of treatments, however my top three are TMD Tempromandibular disorders (Pain and headaches due to bruxism), cosmetic anterior restorations and dentures.

What are you proud of in your practice?

I love working with my father and treating patients together. The patients we treat have been coming to this office for generations and I enjoy continuing that care and treating their future generations. Some patients were treated as children and now bring their children to see us. I love ensuring that all the patients are given the top quality of care and do not fear dental visits.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

From simply closing spaces and removing white spots to full mouth rehabilitation, I strive to give each and every patient a great look just for them that they can be proud of. I enjoy treating patients with TMD and bruxism. I have struggled with bruxism most of my life. I have tried and used most appliances. I enjoy helping patients who have also suffered with these problems.
