Dentistry, as a specialty of medicine, has become increasingly complex, and it demands a team approach to difficult problems. A commitment to engaging one's mind, seeking out new experiences and treatment modalities, and acting in leadership roles remain essential to my dental practice; this is what sets my practice apart from the rest.
I actively define my practice as a relationship practice- one that treats the person and not just the patient. By emphasizing the humanistic approach to dental care, the process of dental therapy is infinitely easier and more accessible.
My position as Section Chief of Restorative Dentistry, Department of Dentistry, Yale-New Haven Hospital mandates that I must stay current with the newest trends and developments.
