What is one thing that patients should know
My practice is centered on excellence in patient
care. It is not only about using the latest technology to provide superior contemporary and
comprehensive care. Our delivery of patient care
is a continuum that begins with the initial contact
with the office and proceeds through the building
of long-term relationships with our patients. Living
in an ever changing world brings a lot of excitement to the practice. I belong to three dental
study clubs and I am president of one, to keep up
with new techniques and technology. Reinventing oneself is most rewarding. Appreciating every
day as if it were a gift are my words to live by. At
the end of the day, I feel like I have just seen old
What is the biggest challenge in your job?
While we are not contracted by the insurance
companies to provide dental services, our office
does an excellent job of navigating the benefit levels of our patients’ insurance coverages. Because
we are a non-network office, we can provide the
patient with a wide range of services and our patients are able to achieve a greater level of health.
Most importantly, the patient education of how
their dental health affects their general health is
an ongoing discussion.
What are your interests outside of work?
It doesn’t get better than watching my family grow
up, playing with my grandchildren and coaching
and going to the sports events that have shaped
their lives. Fly fishing is my Zen. I belong to Trout
Unlimited and I am a board member of my local
chapter. Preserving cold water fisheries is gardening for the future.
