My goal as a dentist is to make my patients happy with their smile and to improve their health to the best of my ability.
I chose the profession because I wanted to make a positive difference in people’s lives, while also building relationships with those in my care. I have practiced dentistry since 1974 and truly value every person I have had the pleasure to meet throughout my career. Many are unforgettable and have, in time, become friends.
I appreciate the trust my patients place in me and am dedicated to always doing what is right for each of them.
