What makes me smile is knowing that as a dentist and triple specialist, I have the ability to save lives every day. Not only do I diagnose and treat cancers, autoimmune disorders, and congenital defects, but I listen to my patients, hear their stories and their pain, and believe them. So many of my patients are survivors of trauma and are terrified of the dentist and of the diagnostic process. By listening, hearing, caring, and understanding, I can alleviate anxiety, increase knowledge, and prevent pain and suffering. In short, I get to be a true physician of the head and neck!
