About My Practice
How do you define a successful result?
When the patient’s eyes light up after seeing their new smile, I know our cosmetic team has done a great job.
What can I expect from a smile makeover consultation?
Our consultations are very productive, as they set the stage for what your new smile will look like. We sit down with every new patient and listen, letting them explain their goals. Most want beautiful, healthy smiles. From there, we get right to work. We perform a thorough exam, and many patients begin their individualized treatment during the very first visit.
What sets your practice apart?
Our patient-centered approach. We have a team of highly skilled, experienced dentists in one location that perform all aspects of cosmetic and implant dentistry and all other dental procedures as well. We also offer convenient hours to patients with early morning and also evening hours until 9 p.m., four nights week. In addition, our practice is structured so that, often, we can start patients on their desired treatment the same day as their consultation. Sometimes patients come in, get the process started and walk out with a beautiful and dramatic change in the very same day.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?
I enjoy tennis, golf and snow skiing.
What's the one thing you're never without?
My sense of humor.
What alternative occupation would you choose?
I am fortunate to be able to do exactly what I am doing.
