About Your Dentist
"A genuine smile comes from the heart, but a healthy smile needs good dental care." ― Wayne Chirisa
"To accommodate the different needs of my patients with empathy and compassion, and continually strive for excellence in the care and comfort I provide. My goal is to work collaboratively with my patients, provide education as well as treatment, and help them understand how maintaining optimal oral health leads to overall well-being and an improved quality of life. My patients can always trust me to act in their best interests and take the time to listen to their concerns so that I may most effectively meet their needs."
