“I chose the specialty of endodontics because of the satisfaction that comes with alleviating patients’ discomfort and have done so in a pleasant, smooth, and even fun manner.  My goal is to change how root canals have been perceived in the past, by creating a fun, friendly environment for the patient, myself, and the staff.  The people I have met over almost 20 years of practice have made me smile just as much as I have made them smile.  I enjoy what I do, and look forward to coming to work each day!”
