I began in private practice in 1988 and since then have managed a dental office treating hundreds of patients a year and employing 34 staff members; dental assistants, hygienists and laboratory technicians. I specialize in implant reconstruction and rebuilding compromised dentition but am additionally trained for Invisalign® and root canal procedures.
