Dentistry is my calling, offering me the chance to positively impact lives every day, with each person I have the privilege of seeing.

I love the opportunity to build meaningful relationships and help bring about positive changes in each person’s life. Interacting with patients allows me to understand their unique needs, concerns, and goals. It also fosters trust and rapport, as patients learn that I am listening and genuinely care about them, what they have to say, and who they are.

It is incredibly fulfilling to see my patients’ smiles and receive their gratitude after successful treatments. Knowing I have helped to improve a patient’s oral health and overall wellbeing is satisfying. Additionally, I value the diversity of interactions with patients, as each one brings a new perspective and experience, enriching my professional journey.

Overall, the connections formed with patients and the satisfaction of helping them achieve healthier smiles are what I cherish most about my career.

In Practice

I have practiced dentistry for more than 30 years, after obtaining my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from New York University. Choosing the oral healthcare field felt like a natural decision. I have always been passionate about helping others and making positives differences in their lives. Dentistry provides a unique opportunity to do just that, by promoting good oral health which is essential for overall wellbeing.

I am fascinated by the intricate structure of the mouth and teeth and am committed to helping patients prevent dental issues while maintaining healthy smiles. I am drawn to the artistic and technical aspects of dentistry, such as restorative and cosmetic procedures, too. These allow me to combine my passion with a creative touch, enhancing my patient’s appearance and ability to eat and speak with confidence.

Joining the oral healthcare field was the ideal decision for me, as it aligns perfectly with my interests, values, abilities, and desire to serve others.

In caring for patients at my practice, I am supported by an exceptional team: all exemplify dedication, compassion, and teamwork. Each member brings unique skills to provide comprehensive care tailored to our patients’ needs. We prioritize empathy, professionalism, and ongoing training to ensure the highest stand of care. And our collaborative environment fosters a positive experience for our patients, making their visits comfortable and rewarding.

Professional Affiliations and Continuing Education

I am an active member of the American Dental Association and Northern Virginia Dental Society. It is through continuing educational opportunities offered by these organizations that I keep at the forefront of changes in oral healthcare.

This dedication to constant learning ensures patients receive top-quality care. By staying updated on the latest advancements, I am able to offer innovative treatments with superior outcomes. Likewise, these courses and trainings allow me to provide safe and effective procedures that meet the highest standard. This commitment reinforces patients’ trust and assures them they are in capable, caring hands for their dental needs.
