Philosophy of care

I am dedicated to protecting the dental health of children. I am devoted to care in growth and development, prevention, orthodontic and behavioral management. I treat healthy children from birth to age 18 as well as children and adults with special needs. Every child is special and deserves respect and consideration when helping the child and family navigate their dental health goals.

Why I entered medicine

I entered pediatric dentistry for the challenge of helping a children with their fears and to deliver care in a non-threatening way.

Community involvement

Our practice has been involved in countless community wide efforts including the Autism Speaks Walk, Down Syndrome Walk, Meal on Wheels and Give Kids a Smile Day. Currently, we are working on two grants. One with the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry to have access to care for the Head Start Community locally. The second is a statewide effort in conjunction with the Academy of Pediatrics called Healthy Teeth/Healthy Children
