Quote

You can expect that my team and I will deliver the highest quality of care possible with compassion. Getting a root canal can be quite intimidating, and it is my top priority that you walk away with a positive experience.

Favorites

My favorite sport is golf, which I have been playing for over 25 years. Other than my family, it's my greatest passion in life. My favorite food is Japanese, especially sushi. I don't think I can go a week without it.
