Why did you choose dentistry?
“I chose dentistry because growing up, I loved the dental office. I loved getting my teeth cleaned! Early in my dental education, I realized it’s so much more than a “fun” environment. It’s getting to help people become (most importantly) pain-free, confident, and excited about their smiles!”

I encourage them to be very open and honest with me about what they are experiencing. We most always can adjust whatever we need to do to create a comfortable and positive experience.”
