Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?
Because I believe in working in the best interest of the patient. I believe in treating every patient as I would treat my own family, with warmth and kindness. I enjoy working with my patients to prevent future cavities because I believe prevention is better than cure.
What are you proud of in your practice?
It's a fun place to work with a great team. I am proud that we have a dental office specifically designed for geriatric and special needs patients and serve the population with difficult access to dental care.
Which cases do you enjoy treating? Why?
Any procedure that would take my patient out of discomfort and improve their quality of life. Why? because I believe that's the essence of a healthcare provider. I aim to treat the person and not just the cavity / mouth.
