“What I enjoy most about pediatric dentistry is creating long-term relationships with the kids; whether it’s helping a fearful child feel comfortable in the office, or having children run up to me on the playground excited to show me that they lost another tooth. I enjoy getting to know the kids and watching them grow.”
