About Me

When you look at parents holding their newborns, one of the first things you notice is their smile. In fact, one of the most exciting moments for a parent is when their baby smiles back at them for the first time. My passion for dentistry grew realizing how important a person’s smile is throughout their life.

At Smile Citadel, I am determined to directly impact and serve my community in a positive way by being empathetic and attentive to your dental needs. My greatest joy comes from creating a great dental experience for my patients, and at the same time enhancing their sense of dignity and self-worth. I am passionate to continue building a reputation of exceptional dental care.
