Beliefs and integrity

“The patient is the most important person in my dental office. My commitments to the excellence not only must emphasize the technical skills of dentistry but also reflect strong components of humanism, kindness, and compassion.”

Only after gaining an insight into the patient’s concerns (his or her dental needs, fear, and financial affairs) together with a comprehensive dental examination, proper diagnosis, and appropriate prognosis that an individual treatment plan is prepared and presented to the patient. Each dental procedure will then be performed with extreme respect for the patient’s body, absolute infection control, and supportive post-operative care.

In order to provide for the patient with the most advanced dental treatments, continuing education and improvements are essential. Consultation with other dental and medical specialists and timely referrals when indicated are part of my continuing devotion to the patient’s oral health.

“I am very enthusiastic about serving my patient’s dental needs and what is ultimately the most satisfying occupation of all services–the art of care and healing for those in need.”
