Smile Workshop is committed to serving the community in underserved areas. His passion for dentistry started quite personally. After being treated for a discoloration of the teeth known as fluorosis, he learned at an early age how much a healthy smile can affect one’s confidence and outlook. He discovered how invaluable a positive experience at the dentist’s office could be for both kids and adults. The desire to provide the best patient experience is what drives each member of his team.
