HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR TREATMENT PHILOSOPHY?

I like to use a gentle, caring, compassionate approach to each patient. Finding out the correct problem by listening carefully to the patient, and then coming up with an evidence-based plan to help speed recovery and resolve the problem.

WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU WHEN IT COMES TO WORKING WITH REFERRING DOCTORS?

I am an extension of the referring dentist’s office and I strive to show the patient that I am a useful, caring, considerate teammate with their general dentist or specialist. 

WHAT ABOUT YOUR EXPERIENCE SETS YOU APART?

The patient always comes first. I put special care into developing and keeping a good relationship with my patients. I believe it all comes down to treating my patients like a family member or good friend.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR CHAIR-SIDE STYLE?

Considerate, friendly and nurturing. I want to fully understand your problem so that I can come up with the best solution for you.

WHAT INNOVATION HAS REALLY CHANGED DENTISTRY IN YOUR OPINION?

Dental implants have allowed me to give patients who have lost a tooth something that looks and feels like a natural tooth.

WHAT DO YOU THINK THE FUTURE HOLDS FOR ORAL SURGERY?

Advances in technology have already helped decrease the pain and swelling that occurs after surgery. These advances will only get better in the future. 

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB?

I enjoy my relationship with patients, other doctors, and the staff that I work with on a daily basis. 

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO ORAL SURGERY?

I lost several front teeth in a traumatic accident as a child that prevented my adult teeth from developing. I had to wear a partial denture until I was 18. I met an oral surgeon who could offer me something that was relatively new at the time, dental implants, that would allow me to throw my partial denture in the trash. The day that I had dental implants placed, it changed my life. 

WHAT ALTERNATIVE CAREER WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

A chef or restaurant owner. I love to cook!

WHAT ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT OUTSIDE OF ORAL SURGERY?

Running, snow skiing, and of course, my wonderful, supportive family.
