I believe most procedures can be carried out a lot smoother and less traumatizing than people think or have heard. When treating a patient, one of my main objectives has always been reducing overall anxiety and desensitizing patients.
Moreover, in today’s world with such great access to information, it’s our duty as treatment providers, to explain all the risks and benefits of proposed treatments and clarify all possible misconceptions that may exist so people can make informed decisions when it comes to choosing one treatment over another.
I completed the ITD program at the University of Western Ontario in London so I could pursue my career in Canada. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry but I have a special interest in root canal treatment and cosmetic dentistry. I’m an advocate of preventative dentistry over restorative and I promote saving teeth versus replacing them.
During my free time, I’d like to stay active. I’d like to snowboard in winter and go swimming in summertime or just spend time at the gym and work out. I’m also a musical person and play the piano and listen to different types of music almost all the time. You will probably catch me humming to a song when I’m working which seems to have a calming effect on most people!
