“It is an honor to be a dentist and to, literally, help people smile. I love being of service to those around me, and forming genuine friendships and relationships of trust with those I treat. As a family dentist, I feel fortunate and enjoy seeing generations of a family: children, parents, and grandparents. It is a great compliment that our patients refer and entrust us with treating those they care about most.”
