Special Professional Interests

What I enjoy most about oral and maxillofacial surgery is the broad scope of the specialty.  It is gratifying to be able to enhance people’s lives through rehabilitation of their oral condition, repair of traumatic facial injuries, or resolution of infection and pathologic conditions.  My goal is to gain the trust of my patients by treating everyone as if they were a friend or family member.

I had to rush everything so I could get back to work. I understand seeing multiple people in a day, but it was frustrating that I had to rush my experience.

This was an exceptional dentist, I was very impressed. He answered all my questions, gave me needed tips I didn't ask for was not in a rush to get to the next patient, spent as much time with me as I needed and was personable. I think I detected a bit of a sense of humor. He did not feel sad for me with the procedure he was just matter of fact. This is where we are and this is where we need to go. As he was working on me he explained what he was doing which was very comforting. Explained when he completed a step and moving on to the next. I hope he treats all of his patience like he treated me. Never change or if you have to change only get better.

This was the first time having this doctor and hence my apprehension with him. He did a good job and I would feel comfortable coming back to him.
