Care Philosophy


 As a Board Certified Prosthodontist, I Specialize in Cosmetic, Reconstructive and Implant dentistry. I have chosen to be a sole practitioner, so that all of my patients receive a consistent quality of care.  I like to meet every patient in our consultation room so that we may begin your journey with us in a relaxing environment. This gives us the opportunity to comfortably discuss your needs and goals. Allowing us to co- create a treatment plan that is the best choice for you emotionally and financially, but most of all to support your dental and overall health.

We incorporate many of dentistry's latest technologies; digital x-rays, 3D imagining, and T-scans and use only the highest quality labs to fabricate our customized crowns, veneers, and dentures, but the most important ingredient is my team! They are by far the best. Our Hygienists are always gentle and thorough. The front staff is always complimented on their friendliness and their ability to handle all aspects of patient care from scheduling to insurance filing.Even if we are not in your network, we will submit the proper paperwork and only have you pay your estimated patient share.

We are Smile Design Specialists and we welcome you to our practice,  where "We Do It Right the First Time".
