MOST REWARDING ASPECT OF DENTISTRY
“The most rewarding aspect of periodontics is helping patients regain their smile after having tooth loss or periodontal disease. The loss of a tooth, due to trauma or extraction, is a frightening experience that is not only inconvenient, but also significantly changes how patients socialize, work and eat. I love to use my training, experience and expertise to help patients, in collaboration with their referring dentists, to restore their functionality and quality of life.”
