“For me, dentistry is not just a career, but a passion. I have been appreciated by my patients for having a ‘gentle touch’ and providing ‘pain-free’ dentistry, and I promise to continue to provide all my patients with this same care. I believe that transparency is important for a healthy doctor-patient relationship, since transparency helps create trust. Therefore, my goal is to always keep my patient’s treatment as transparent as possible and take the time to answer any questions you may have.”
