My profession is a major part of me. Building long-term, trusting relationships with my patients is what I aim to achieve. Regardless of what has brought the patient into my care, my priority is always to listen and learn what they want, accurately diagnose, and then deliver excellent results. I especially appreciate when a new patient comes to me and says that I managed to get their relative out of pain and restored their oral health and now they want me to the same for them!
