“I believe in a conservative approach to dentistry, with available treatment options always presented to my patients. Listening to a patient’s concerns allows me to succeed many times where others have failed. My goals for my patients are to prevent tooth loss and look to permanent, bone attached replacements where teeth are missing.”
