My greatest achievement:

- DDS, MS, PhD and being a Prosthodontist
- Running a high-end state of the art cosmetic and implant-based office with patients flying from out of state and from abroad to be seen by us.

The future of my field is:

- I believe cosmetic dentistry plays an important roll in day-to-day activities, from being confident in yourself to laugh and interact with people; nowadays it seems like it became even more important since everyone has to obey to social distancing and are “forced” to do Facetime and Zoom meetings where the only thing peoples see is there face and smile.
- However I also believe the dentists are not made equal and the true cosmetic dentist will always be needed.
- It is part of our protocol to interview to find out exactly what the patient expects, cosmetic dentistry is a luxury.

My most requested procedures are:

- Cosmetic Dentistry
- Extreme Makeovers
- Dental Implants

What surgical advancements are you most excited about?

- Minimally invasive surgeries in general, the more conservative you are the quitter the recovery.

What are you best known for?

- We are known to help people smile again, I believe I am not in the tooth business, I believe I am in the beauty industry where I am able to make them look their best, where they are not more self-conscious about their smile.
- Being a Smile Designer and a Prosthodontist.
- Reputation and the ability to over-delivery on a daily basis.

What is your most memorable patient reaction?

Tough question, there are so many memorable moments and reactions we get every single time we finish a case. We have numerous cases of people crying; tears of joy, I get tons of hugs as thank you etc. What motivates me the most is what I am able to provide them with and the reaction they have with the end results, that is what makes me weak up every morning.

What sets my practice apart:

- It is a true combination of factors that makes our practice a reference in our area.
- Vision is one of the key skills that is very hard to master, the vision to know exactly how the smile will end up and the road map to get there.
- My credentials (DDs, Ms, PhD and Prosthodontist), my passion, expertise and experience, state of the art facility, and a great supportive team.
- We take time to listen to what the patients have to say.
- It is part of our protocol to interview every patient and understands exactly what they expect.
- We custom tailor every case; based on the patient's desires and needs.

What I love most about my profession is:

- I am passionate about dentistry and it is a true honor to be able to perform cosmetic dentistry and help people on a daily basis.
- help they make their dream smile become a reality.
- Change people's lives through their smiles.
