A smile is the most powerful thing that a person possesses. I love helping my patients maximize that asset by making their smiles bright, their teeth straight and beautifully shaped with their oral health great. My passion is to provide the highest quality care at an affordable price. I want my patients to feel that they have been served with compassion. It gives me great joy to see them feel good about themselves and how they look because of the dental care they have received from me.
EDUCATION AND CONTINUING EDUCATION
I am not satisfied with providing average care. I continuously pursue being the best and striving for perfection, a passion that began during my years in school. I attended Calvin College for my undergraduate degree and continued on to the University of Detroit where I earned my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1982. I completed my General Practise Residency from Strong’s Memorial Hospital and the University of Rochester in 1983.
I am devoted to excellence and am a lifelong learner. I am constantly fine tuning my existing skills and continuously embracing new skills and technology. In 1987, I became a fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry after completing numerous hours of continuing education in all aspects of dentistry. In 1996, I became a Master of General Dentistry. I am currently pursuing the Lifelong Learning and Service Recognition through the AGD and Accreditation and Fellowship in the American College of Cosmetic Dentistry. I am also active in many local, state, and national dental associations.
