Personal statement: My goal is to provide the highest quality comprehensive dental care for my patients in a comfortable and pleasant setting, utilizing the best technology and material in the market today. I strive to treat everyone with dignity, respect, kindness, and understanding. So often, I hear “I hate the dentist” or “I’ve been avoiding the dentist for years” due to past experiences. Overcoming this obstacle is near to my heart and I strive diligently to make this a thing of the past. Here at Brite Clean Smiles, you can expect to get an honest evaluation with the best long term treatment options, while being treated like family. We strive to treat teeth in the most conservative way when possible. I would love to get a chance to meet you, listen to your concerns, and earn your trust.
