“It is an honor and a privilege to serve the patients in our practice; they are the reason I come to work with a smile on my face every day. I enjoy meeting new patients and getting to know them and their families as we work together to improve their oral health. I appreciate it when patients want to play an active role in their dental experience. I joined the oral healthcare field to help change the way people think about going to the dentist’s office. When patients tell me that they didn’t like to visit the dentist before, but now they love it, I know I’ve been successful!”
