I have been blessed with great relationships with patients, many over generations. And with it is the good fortune of working with partners and specialists, many university faculty, which has allowed my patients to have the expertise of their special educations. As a team, we providers feel the highest quality of care for a patient results when we can collaborate with some of the best minds in dentistry.
I have always loved teaching dentistry. Not only is it fun for me, but it requires that I learn all I can about the subjects. Once said "the best way to become an expert at something is to teach it". I have been fortunate to teach 3 subjects over the years. The latest in technology for dentistry, conservative cosmetic dentistry and more recently, dental solutions for sleep disorders.
The teaching passion has also allowed me to feed my travel passion, having taught dentists from coast to coast as well as internationally in interesting places such as Dubai, Kuala Lumpur, Australia, and many European nations among others.
I love improving someone's appearance with veneers which do not require injections and grinding down the teeth, which is why I teach dentists throughout the country and world how to place Lumineers.
The tears of joy we have shared when a patient has a new smile are many.
Educated at the University of Illinois College of Dentistry, I look forward to enjoying even longer relationships with my patient friends as well as with the new ones I will meet.
