“I was attracted to Endodontics while I was in dental school.  I was always fascinated by the level of attention and problem-solving skills that was required to come up with the right diagnosis and treatment.  I was passionate about the fact that nothing can replace an original tooth.  Nature has given us something precious to look after and keep.”

“I wanted to practice general dentistry to expose myself to its various fields.  This exposure strengthened my determination to pursue a specialty in Endodontics.  My deep admiration for this field has led me to study and practice dentistry in two countries for more than fifteen years.”

“My goal as an endodontist is to use cutting edge technology that enables me to provide  the most accurate and predictable outcome for my patients to save their teeth.  By providing gentle endodontic care, explaining the treatment and answering all questions up front.  I strive to make a procedure that to the public has a painful and unpleasant image, as relatively painless and simple as possible.  The collaboration between the patient, their general dentist and myself in trying to achieve a comfortable and educational experience is very rewarding.”
