“Today, I find it personally and professionally rewarding to be a periodontist because it allows me to help patients enjoy improved dental health and more attractive smiles. I take personal pride in providing a high level of expertise and evidence-based therapies such as AlloDerm® soft tissue grafting. In addition, I am dedicated to friendly, patient focused care. I will take the time to explain your periodontal health and any proposed treatment in simple, easy-to-understand language. You will know exactly what to expect, every step of the way.”
