I believe that it is important to recognize the unique needs of each individual child in order to provide the highest level of care. I strive to provide compassionate care in a child friendly environment, where education and communication form the basis for crafting a treatment plan that is as individualized as it is effective. My patients are treated as children first, and then as patients - this is the cornerstone of my practice.
