I am the owner and the orthodontist at 1st Choice Dental. I established 1st Choice Dental in July of 1996 and have been blessed with the continuous and remarkable support of the community ever since. My passion for my work stems mainly from the positive energy that I receive from my satisfied patients and my knowledgeable staff. I take pride in knowing that I do my absolute best for my patients every day.
My inspiration is drawn from leading a team that shares the same values as me. Our goal at 1st Choice is to provide our patients with the highest degree of care that addresses not only their dental needs but also their lifestyles, financial situations and emotional needs. We pride ourselves on providing our patients with a comprehensive plan that includes the best options for their care.
