'  Going to the dentist should not be scary; rather not going to dentist for your routine check-ups can lead to long term oral health problems like gum disease, cavities, even tooth loss to name a few. I strive to give all my patients a comfortable and relaxed experience with my expertise in the field and use of Pain-free Dentistry. I believe it is crucial to have a detailed and transparent communication with my patient to understand the problem or desired outcome to achieve a healthy and confident smile.'
