I am fortunate to be surrounded by two doctors and a team that continually advance their skills and knowledge. Plaza Dental is always evolving. Most of all, I appreciate the trust the doctors have shown in me over the years. Dentistry runs through my veins and the dedication I have goes beyond the technicality of gums and teeth. I definitely enjoy the relationship I forge with each patient. My love for dentistry and the preventative aspect in dental hygiene help fuel my passion throughout the years. I still get excited every time someone makes an improvement with their oral care. That exact moment is a true celebration. WOW! I am here for you… for the long run. YOU will NOT get a quick cleaning from me. Overtime, I hope to make a dental convert out of you. I hope to help each of you understand the importance of prevention, of looking beyond convenience, and seeing for yourselves, the benefits of this lifestyle change.
