Being able to provide those services to my community brings me immense joy and fulfillment, and I can’t imagine doing anything else. Each of my patients is important to me.

  • I know that kids get fluoride treatments but, recently my dentist has been recommending them for me too.  Is this really necessary?
  • How often do I really need to brush and floss to maintain my teeth?
