 I am an avid expert skier. I often ski 50 or more days in a single season. To be physically able to stay strong on the snow I work out regularly, pumping iron, doing Zumba classes, spinning, and playing tennis. Although we have most of the newest advanced dental hardware and use the latest and finest dental materials (and I know about dental materials because I have a Ph. D. in chemistry), I have another take on technology. I think the dentist himself is the very best high tech item in any dental practice. The dentist’s knowledge, skill and the application of appropriate treatment to make best use of the amazing hardware now available is the ultimate hi tech. Additionally, without an unflinching commitment to integrity nothing else matters. Finally all of us here at my practice believe in the Comfort Zone philosophy, which means we will do our best to make you comfortable, to ease any pain you have and to not inflict any pain while you are under our care.
