As a dentist, I believe that exceptional dentistry can make a difference for anyone seeking a more confident smile. As YOUR dentist, I look forward to giving you the dental experience that you deserve. My practice philosophy is to combine the best possible dental care for my patients while using the most modern procedures and equipment available in dentistry. I look forward to helping you achieve the best in oral health.
I have been a practicing dentist since 2003, but my journey toward becoming a dentist began years before:
- 1998: graduated from Louisiana State University with a Bachelor of Science
- 2002: summer dental externship in Atoyac, Mexico
- 2003: completed my Doctorate of Dental Surgery (DDS) from Louisiana State University School of Dentistry
- 2004: completed a general practice residency (GPR) at Woodhull Hospital in Brooklyn, New York
- 2007: opened private practice location in Baton Rouge
- 2013: Graduate of Kois Center (Advanced Continuing Education Center)
Conditions are always changing in the dental field! As technology advances and more people realize the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene, it’s essential to stay current on the latest trends in order to continue to offer my patients the best possible care. To keep up on all the advancements in dentistry, I stay involved in continuing education, and have completed more than 1,200 hours of continuing education since completing my dental school training.
