“Dentistry is a combination of art and science, two fields which have always fascinated me. After receiving a Bachelors degree from Georgia State University in Biological and Chemical Sciences, I pursued my dental degree at Georgia Regents University, college of dental medicine, formerly the Medical College of Georgia.”
“Patient care and comfort are my top priorities. I believe that dentistry is a life-long commitment for both the patient and the dental provider. Through these relationships, I am able to express my passion for complex restorative and cosmetic dental cases. It is also important for me to educate patients, so that they are able to make the best possible decisions. I am excited to join Lawrenceville Healthy Smile team and look forward to giving you a brighter smile!”
