As I age, I've begun to notice changes in my own mouth that led me to research& find answers that can help my patients. In my 20's I had a great smile; I always received complements& never looked at myself as someone who may develop the problems I spoke to my patients about. But slowly I started to notice my teeth shifting, my front teeth appearing shorter than they did in old photos,& recently I noticed some clicking/discomfort in my jaw joint accompanied by snoring. All this curiosity about myself& wanting to prevent my son from developing cavities,gum disease or any of these issues,has led me to gain a great deal of knowledge about prevention, proper treatment,& the mouth body connection.I believe with this knowledge I am able to offer my patients answers& results that could take them years& numerous doctors to find. My goal is to help my patients achieve a beautiful,healthy smile.
