I am in a unique profession where I can truly help people by changing their lives in a positive way. I find immense satisfaction in helping my patients achieve their smile goals and love getting to know them on a personal basis. Each year, I complete numerous continuing dental education courses - well above the minimum required for licensure. These courses ensure I am able to provide the best possible care to my patients by staying up to date on current procedures and advancements. I have completed a range of courses through the Dawson Academy, the Ross Nash Esthetic Continuum, the Seattle Study Club, and the Scottsdale Center for Computerized Dentistry. As part of my commitment to furthering my knowledge, I am an active member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, West Coast District Dental Association, and Pinellas County Dental Association, past president. I have also served as an examiner and monitor for the Florida State dental licensure exam. I've been making a positive, lasting difference in people's lives and building strong relationships for almost 20 years. I truly love what I do. I often have the opportunity to change a person's perception of dentistry. It's incredibly rewarding to work with someone who is fearful and uneducated about dentistry and help people become active and enthusiastic participants in their care. I cherish the fact that my patients feel like members of my extended family. I genuinely care about each person who comes to me for treatment and appreciate the diverse needs and goals of my patients.
