Why are you passionate about dentistry?
I am dedicated to creating beautiful, long-lasting smiles and maintaining the oral health of my patients. I deliver the highest quality dental care in an atmosphere of warmth, kindness and respect because I believe that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.
What is your practice known for?
Technology. Change in our world is happening quickly. For dentistry, this is no exception, and we utilize all these advances. We are using new imaging modalities paired with digital approaches and three-dimensional imaging. These technologies allow us to deliver speed and accuracy and share the images with our patients.
We are also adept at optimizing information technology and incorporating data science partnered with artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve patient care. We utilize the iTero element, which is the first 3D intraoral scanner with near-infrared imaging technology. This can detect and monitor cavities above the gumline in between teeth in real time. We incorporate intraoral cameras with high-resolution imaging and live videos to show fracture lines, cavities and other important facts to the patient and use this to track changes in teeth, fillings, gums and other structures inside the mouth.
In addition to all these new technologies, we have a multifunctioning imaging system blending 2D panoramic and cephalometric imaging, Cone Beam CT imaging, 3D facial scanning and 3D model scanning to ensure that we enhance the patient experience and elevate our precision.
Our patient-centered practice offers comprehensive dental care with an equal commitment to preventive, restorative and cosmetic dentistry. We spend as much time with our patients as they need to understand the treatment and feel comfortable and relaxed. We strive to deliver the highest quality dental care in an atmosphere of warmth, kindness and respect. Our patients leave the office with a realistic treatment plan that is comprehensive and based on decisions we make together.
Tell us about the patients you see.
We welcome our patients with empathy and open arms, no matter what state your mouth and teeth are in and regardless of your previous access to dental care. We foster healthy smiles and provide a safe place for everyone without judgment. Integrity is one of our core values, and we make every decision based on your dental care needs, goals and budget. Whether it’s been six months or six years since your last dentist visit, you’ll receive the same professional, compassionate care.
What product do you recommend?
We highly recommend Invisalign, a series of clear, BPA-free plastic trays that many patients prefer instead of traditional braces. Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable—so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which usually means you spend less time in your doctor’s office getting adjustments.
For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for choosing to receive orthodontic care. If you’re self-conscious about your smile, having Invisalign treatment will greatly improve the way you look and feel. When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you’ve always dreamed of as well as the confidence to show it off! We want you to feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience, so our practice is dedicated to making sure you receive the quality care you deserve.
How do you enhance your patients’ smiles in a minimally invasive way?
Teeth can be affected by discoloration, spaces, gaps, chips and misalignment. A conservative way to repair these problems is bonding combined with enamel shaping. No anesthesia is required, and results can be seen immediately. For further information, please visit our office for a consultation.
