Our Vision and Purpose

Our wish for you, your children and family is to achieve the goal of never needing dental work in the future. Our purpose comes from the derivation of the word “doctor.” It comes from the Latin word docere, which means “to show, to teach or to teach to know.”

We help achieve this goal of “teaching” with hygiene visits twice a year…a goal that can eliminate gum disease and future dental work for a lifetime. This goal is our sincerest wish for you, your children & family!

“My philosophy of dentistry is to treat every patient in the manner that I would expect to be treated; with candor, respect, professionalism, and compassion.”

"My philosophy of dentistry is to treat every patient in the manner that I would expect to be treated; with candor, respect, professionalism, and compassion.

The patient in my treatment room is the most important individual at that time and receives my undivided attention as well as the best possible dental care.

I keep up with the constant changes in dentistry by taking some of the most advanced continuing education courses and by employing state-of-the-art equipment. This enables me to provide my patients with the best treatment.

I sincerely value the professional relationship that has developed with all my patients as a result of my philosophy, qualifications, and trust."
