About Me

"As an oral and maxillofacial surgeon it is rewarding to build the foundation on which the general dentist can restore the patient to normal form and function; then completing the process with facial esthetic procedures."

This is not my first visit with the dentist. Dentist has learned to slow down and explain what he is doing, why, and what are the risks. Also, the dentist has learned to explain what my role is during and after the procedure. I also am interested in the proposed duration of the procedure and what are the expectations of any interactions with any medications.
