Fun Facts / Unforgettable moments with Patients:




One winter late afternoon, a new patient walked-in,

although he looked intimidating because of his size,

he seemed friendly during our initial conversation.

I brought him in & told him to sit in the dental chair.

I noticed that he started to sweat and I mean

sweating a lot (in large drops). Before I even had

the chance to ask him if he is ok, he said with a smile


"Do't let my size fool you, I'm the


BIGGEST CHICKEN when it comes to

the Dentist."


Beliefs:


To make it in life, we should be strong enough

to stand alone, smart enough to know when we

need help, and brave enough to ask for it.


Favorite Qoutes:


"Hard times are like a washing machine. They

twist and turn and knock us around, but in the

end, we come out cleaner, brighter and better

than before."


​Patient's Service:


​Coming to the dentist is hard enough for some people.

So, once they're in our office, it is my goal to make

them comfortable and make them realize that they

made the right decision of coming to our office.
