As a dentist, I have the opportunity to interact with a variety of people from different backgrounds. This has helped improve my communication skills and my patience, while expanding and deepening my love for dentistry and everything it has to offer.
By informing my patients about the connections between their oral and systemic health, I have been able to create trust and understanding. I especially enjoy spending time addressing their concerns. Doing so allows me to better aid my patients towards their needs to get healthy, not just orally but systemically as well.
I enjoy interacting with patients on a daily basis, establishing and nurturing relationships that create trust. Trust is critical, for with it the patient comes to understand I care about them, personally, and knows I am providing care and guidance based their specific needs. I want each patient to know I have their best interests at heart and am here to help them better their oral and overall health, so they are able to live a full, happy, and healthy life!
