Personal Statement: As a professional practitioner for over 15 years, I have had the opportunity to see and treat nearly every imaginable dental condition. Because there are multiple ways to treat these conditions, I prefer to work with my referring dentists on developing a plan that is right for them and their patients. I promise to thoroughly evaluate your patients’ condition, document and discuss their options clearly and consider all aspects of your concerns prior to offering a treatment plan. Because I worked as a general dentist for many years, I am comfortable explaining and providing you and your patients evaluations and options based on restorative and esthetic considerations. I enjoy working with my colleagues to provide optimal treatment experience and outcomes. Thank you for considering our office for all your periodontal and implant needs.
