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

1) High knowledge and experience with complicated cases including implants, full mouth reconstruction, All-on-X, gum disease, and many more. 2) Listening to patients without judgment to find out the best solution for a long-term oral health and functionality. 3) Stand up behind my work with full confidence. Patient's satisfaction is the focus always.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

I am skilled in all areas of dentistry, but primarily focus on Cosmetics, Invisalign, Oral Surgery and Teeth Whitening in my practice. I believe very strongly in continuing my education and completing advanced training programs in Orthodontics, Periodontics, Endodontics and Cosmetic Dentistry to make sure I can provide the highest quality of dentistry to all my patients.

What are you proud of in your practice?

We have an amazing team that do all what it needs to keep patients comfortable and satisfied.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I truly enjoy treating all my patients. However, one of the most rewarding moments for a dentist is to see a patient leave the office with a beautiful smile on their face while only a short time ago they were experiencing discomfort, pain or embarrassment to smile.
