“I truly believe that that the your mouth is the gateway to your body. Years of research shows there is a link with high risk-oral bacteria entering the bloodstream. These bacteria can contribute to cardiovascular disease, dementia, preterm labor, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, and more. Keeping your teeth, gums and jawbone healthy and disease free will help you lead a healthier life and aid in the betterment of your overall health. This is what I strive for my patients. My primary practice philosophy is to treat my patients as I would myself or my family, with no judgement. When you are in my office, you can expect to be treated like family and friends, and my goal is to give you treatment options that you are comfortable with while using the most modern technologies and materials. We are on this journey together! Here’s to being happier and healthier.”
