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

My extensive training and experience in paediatric dentistry, along with my strong passion for treating children, has allowed me to provide all aspects of dentistry to children since 2000, and I find myself at extreme ease and comfort dealing even with the most anxious children.

What are you proud of in your practice?

The most rewarding moment for me practicing as a children's dentist is seeing my little patients who were anxious and in pain shortly before, are happily looking for a prize from the treasure chest, and leave the office smiling and pain-free.

Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?

I totally enjoy treating children, infancy through adolescence, in all aspects of pediatric dentistry including, but not limited to, fillings, tooth extractions, baby root canals, silver caps, space maintainers, etc. I also strongly believe that the foundation of healthy mouth in adulthood is laid during early childhood, and that the parents are of a vital importance in helping their children developing healthy oral care routine. As a result, I feel being engineering the oral health of my little patients by providing oral hygiene instructions and diet recommendations to expecting/nursing mothers, older children and their parents. I am also trained and licensed to provide dental treatment for anxious/un-cooperative/disabled/medically-compromised children under Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation and sleeping dentistry (general anesthesia).
