Victoria Dentist. World Class Smiles.
My staff and I are pleased to welcome you to our website. As a specialist in prosthodontics and prosthetic dentistry, my goal is to improve your quality of life by restoring your mouth to its optimum state of health, comfort, chewing ability and appearance.
The specialty of prosthodontics includes implant dentistry, complete and partial removable dentures, fixed crowns and bridges and cosmetic dentistry. I also provide expertise in the highly specialized fields of prosthetic reconstruction of facial and oral defects caused by clefts, trauma, or cancer, and the management of snoring, sleep apnea and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) bite and disorders.
You probably have questions about what to expect when first seeing a specialist. This website is designed to give you an introduction and tour to my office and an idea of how I can help you. In my office your needs come first.
All that is good begins with a SMILE
When you visit our office, your smile is our top priority. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with the personalized, gentle care that you deserve.
Part of our commitment to serving our patients involves providing information that helps them to make more informed decisions about their oral health needs. This website is a resource we hope youâ€™ll find both useful and interesting.
