Dentistry gives me the opportunity to change people’s lives. Doing cosmetic procedures, such as bonding, veneers, and crowns, allows me to give patients bright, beautiful, natural-looking, and healthy smiles. Patients who are missing teeth can have their teeth replaced with dental implants, restoring function as well aesthetics, which improves individuals’ self-esteem and quality of life.
Creating and maintaining healthy, functional, and beautiful smiles, while building relationships with patients, is what excites me the most about my career.
