My mission is to educate patients about keeping their teeth and gums healthy. In my 17 years of practicing dentistry, I have learned that many have misconceptions about oral hygiene and suffer the consequences as a result: cavities, gum disease and bad breath. Few realize that gum disease is linked to diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke. I am passionate about making sure every one of our patients is empowered to take care of themselves and equipped with a new understanding of why oral healthcare is important. I am also very interested in the dental management of cancer patients before, during and after chemotherapy or physical therapy.
