Who I Am

What do you love most about your practice?

The people I work with and the people I treat. I have been blessed to have an amazing team to work with, many of which have been team members for 10+ years. And, the many appreciative and genuine patients that have entrusted their smiles to our team, and seeing the positive impact that it has on their lives.

What I love most about being a dentist

The thing that I love the most about practicing dentistry is the profound effect that enhancing an individual’s smile has on their life. It is undoubtedly underestimated until it is reflected upon after the smile lift has been completed. The positive effect on the self-esteem, confidence and general well-being is immeasurable.

What I am most proud of the honor of the achievement of Fellowship Status in the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. This is the highest credential in the evaluation of a practitioner’s life work as a master in cosmetic dentistry. It has opened  opportunities worldwide for me to write and lecture in the US, Japan, Spain, India, Poland and the UK.
