“I am a Florida native and couldn’t think of a better place to live and practice endodontics. I feel a strong connection with the state and its people. A large part of my commitment to providing quality endodontic care is that I’m really providing a valuable service to the people in my community. I find it personally and professionally rewarding to be able to help people of all ages get out of acute pain and back to their normal lives, while at the same time preserving their smiles.
“When I made the decision to become an endodontist, I also made the commitment to stay at the forefront of my field through advanced training and membership in professional organizations. Following dental school, I completed residency training in general practice, oral surgery and oral medicine followed by a master’s degree and certificate in endodontics. I am an active member of several endodontic and dental societies, which allows me to exchange ideas and learn about the newest ways to improve the care I offer my patients.
“Finally, I believe the best dental care starts with compassion and comfort. That’s why I explain everything to my patients beforehand in simple, easy-to-understand language. I feel that educating them makes for better overall treatment.”
