"It is an extremely exciting time to be in the dental field. The continuing advancements in diagnostic services and therapies allow my patients the very best in dental care. I am proud to be one of the first doctors in the area to incorporate state-of-the-art instruments and technology, such as the use of the laser diagnodent and intra-oral camera, to aid in the detection of cavities. In addition, my practice offers a wide variety of cosmetic services, including whitening, micro-abrasion, and Invisalign, the new 'clear' alternative to braces."
