As an oral surgeon, I am allowed to alleviate patients’ pain, restore their oral health and smile, and rebuild their confidence in their appearance. When they feel badly about how their teeth appear, or when they are in constant pain, patients are unable to fully enjoy life. My abilities to truly help an individual make my life and profession rewarding.
I thrive on the relationships I develop with each person I care for; we become more than doctor and patient, through our interactions, and our relationships are strong and long-lasting. When a patient brings a family member to me, or refers a friend, I am honored in the trust they place in me and my abilities.
