He utilizes his knowledge and training when designing dental treatment plans for his patients.
His deep concern for his patients health, his ongoing training in cosmetic - particularly at the highly respected Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI) - and traditional dentistry; along with his commitment to safely remove amalgam fillings, makes him ideally suited to remove and replace them.
I am especially impressed with his dedication to Patient Education as it is such an important part of oral and overall health. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury safe dentist.
