“I want to welcome you to our website and our practice. I would like to share with you a short memory from my childhood, an unforgettable day where my interest in helping others began to develop. I remember once traveling with my family, we came upon a serious car accident. Instinctively my father, who is a medical doctor, stopped and wanted to give a hand. We were quite far from any nearby town and for one of the people injured in the accident it would have been too late if he was to wait for help. Thus my father brought him into our car as we rushed to the hospital. That person did not make it but as I sat in the front seat with my sister, I realized then that the health profession is where I want to be when I grow up. I am very passionate about my career and I hope that you will have a positive and fulfilling experience here at Irresistible Smiles.”
“Our goal is to be able to educate you in the wonderful abilities that we as dentists have. Dentistry, today, is not limited to just addressing cavities and bone loss. We are, on a regular basis, able to help our guests who have TMD (Temporo Mandibular Disorder), head and neck pain, migraines, vertigo (dizziness), sinus infections, ear congestion, and postural issues. Continuing education has been a very important part of my career as I have completed hundreds of hours in trying to keep up with the most up to date information and knowledge.”
