“I believe that having a positive dental experience at a young age is extremely important and with every patient I commit to delivering the same. These early experiences establish lifelong dental habits and a positive experience can potentially alleviate dental anxiety that some carry even into their adulthood. My goal as a Pediatric Dentist is to create an environment that is comfortable and pleasant for my patients while introducing dental behaviors and lifestyle that lead to confident smiles. I sincerely believe that a beautiful smile is not only a reflection of good dental health but it also helps boost confidence and facilitates self-assurance in young adults”
