Patient Care:

  1. Since 1998, I have practiced as a specialist in prosthetic dentistry, where my practice has been primarily limited to restorative and cosmetic procedures including crowns, bridges, veneers, implant restorations, and partial and complete dentures.  I especially enjoy the challenge of complex rehabilitations including full-mouth reconstruction.  I see patients on all-day on Wednesday.
