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.
