My favorite thing that I get to experience as a pediatric dentist is helping a nervous child overcome their anxiety and fear over a few visits until they reach a point where they are excited to come back! It is my goal to provide safe, fun, and informed dental care to my patients and their families.
I believe that the best way to guide my patients to improving their oral health is through education. I am grateful to be in a position to help children and their parents develop healthy habits and understand the complexities of a growing smile.
