I find it exceptionally rewarding to improve a person’s life by reducing dental anxiety, eliminating pain, brightening smiles, and improving the quality of life for others by advancing their oral wellbeing. The joy I receive from working with patients to achieve their oral health and cosmetic dental goals means everything to me.
Working with so many unique and interesting patients and getting to know them as fully rounded people allows me to learn new things, every day. I am honored to develop friendships with my patients and am proud to provide them with the dental and oral health care that they need.

There have been so many amazing advances in dentistry over the years that have allowed us to not only restore dentition that had been lost but also to do it fast and more predictable than ever before. That’s where my commitment to staying educated and on the cutting edge benefits our patients.
In addition to my involvement in local dental organizations and study clubs, I am also active with the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.
The fundamental philosophy at LVI is that the patient deserves the opportunity to be fully informed. They emphasize taking a scientific approach to evaluating the supporting soft tissues and muscles. This physiologic-based philosophy has led LVI to be a leader in the field, and mirrors my own approach to dentistry.
