My approach to dentistry and patient care has changed over the years. As a perfectionist, I had the goal of excellent dental care for my patients. That goal has not changed, but the emphasis has. When I go to work, I am more mindful of my patients, with the ultimate goal of taking care of them. That means taking care of the patient, not the tooth. Every day I aim to provide patients with honest, ethical, excellent dentistry. That means always keeping your needs, fears, trust, time, and finances in mind.
I believe technology is a tool. Some tools are better than others. As so many technologies are developing, I am excited to be implementing them into our practice. Ultimately, they need to make dentistry better. That means easier, faster and better for the patient. As digital technologies are rapidly changing, I am excited for the changes coming in the next 5-10 years and for those that have already arrived.
