    I excel in a number of areas of dental practice, covering numerous
    aspects of oral health while serving patients for over four decades.

    Proudly treating patients who’ve been with me for years, I have always been a strong proponent of good oral health. One can only have a healthy body if the mouth is free of disease or inflammation.
