Beyond dentistry, my spouse and I share a love for travel, electronic music events, and exploring new culinary delights. We find joy in adventures, whether it's hiking in the Rockies or savoring exotic dishes from around the world. Our two miniature dachshunds are also an integral part of our lives, bringing joy and laughter to our daily routines. Much like my approach to patient care, I'm always eager to explore and discover. Let's work together on your smile journey!
