After graduating from The University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry in 2003 I chose to further my professional education with a General Practice Residency at St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center. The residency was in association with the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. I am committed to continuing education at the highest level and attend several programs each year to enhance the care we provide. My current continuing education is focused on IV sedation, dental implant surgery and grafting.
I love our practice and working at Metro Dental Associates as it allows me to provide high quality care. Our patients deserve the best and we are committed to comprehensive care which is personally rewarding.
