Dentistry is a service and a privilege, improving the health of our patients is my number one priority.With a significant portion of our patients in the military, we make sure they are comfortable and are able to trust us even though we may only be their treating dentist for a few short years. We tell them that we will always be their dentist and that we would be happy to give them any advice no matter where they may be. We will even give them advice for any question; where the best restaurants are, best flowers are, best sights to see; anything!I also love to talk about where any patient is from having had a hobby of trying to visit every state in the country and living in quite a few places.
