“I’m grateful for the knowledge my educational background has afforded me, and I always look forward to new and better ways to treat my patients.”
“I like to think that I’ve been practicing ‘people oriented’ dentistry for the last 30 years. During each exam I spend a considerable amount of time just listening to the concerns of my patients, and helping them to understand why I’ve recommended a procedure, and what it will do for them.”
