Dentistry is unique in that I am able to make a change in a person’s life through treatment and see the results almost immediately. The patient enters with a problem or in pain, and in a short time, he or she leaves the office cured and without pain. It is a rewarding transformation to witness.
My patients respond very positively to the care they receive and sincerely show their appreciation. Most of them are like family. I have seen generations of families grow up in my practice and I have become part of their families — attending weddings, graduations, bar mitzvahs, and yes, even funerals.
I became a dentist because I was strongly influenced by a dentist during my teenage years. He taught me the importance of being gentle, caring, and concerned for each patient’s welfare.
I love my patients; I can’t imagine being without them, and that’s why I never intend to retire! It is a profession that keeps changing and improving. New innovations emerge all the time and it’s exciting to be a part of it.
