While surgeons don’t typically have long-term relationships with their patients - at least, compared to general dentists - I thoroughly enjoy working with people and view my patient and I as a team. And trust is the most important aspect of great teamwork. Most people fear both dental work and surgery. When you combine the two, anxiety is extremely common. My role is to relieve your concerns, provide you with the utmost comfort, and work with you to find the best solution.
I became interested in rebuilding lost tissue and placing dental implants when I was exposed to oral and maxillofacial surgery in dental school. Through modern reconstruction techniques, I’m able to rebuild the jaws, teeth and facial bones - a truly inspiring idea that allows me to change the lives of patients who have suffered for years. Specifically, I enjoy working with young people and try to change their perception of dentistry. While most children hate the dentist, I love the look on their face after I complete a procedure and they ask when I’m going to start.
