Comfortable & confident in cosmetic care

Inserting aesthetics into the conversation without any awkwardness—as a natural part of the story. We take the time and space to educate and inform patients of all their enhancement options.

Bringing immediate awareness of the full picture to patients through the use of aesthetic questionnaires—upfront and during the initial consultation.

This is not dental vs. aesthetic. Nor is this aesthetics as an after-thought. This is integrated dentistry AND facial aesthetics, for complete, confident, and comfortable general dental, cosmetic dental, and facial aesthetic care.

Marrying science & art with expertise & passion

Full face make overs require refined precision and an artistic touch in order to achieve both technically sound and beautifully natural results.

Inspiring educators/mentors in residency instilled a passion in us for the technical and scientific challenges of general and cosmetic dentistry. This passion still endures today.

We possess an artistic sensibility, and continually work to improve our aesthetic eye as it relates to the human face, through the exploration and study of practical art forms.

“Why” is in removing barriers to brilliance

Unshackling individuals from confidence barriers and removing road-blocks to their best-selves is at the core of our mission.

Granting patients with the ability to feel confident with their full facial expression, bring them much closer to expressing their most authentic selves.

Gradually shifting audience towards those with a desire and the readiness to seek life-changing improvements for their complete facial aesthetic AND overall self-esteem.

Present. Personable. Polished. Partner.

100% present with each patient. Tuned in and sensitive to patient insecurities, anxieties, and discomfort. Skilled at “reading” and then reassuring, comforting, setting at ease, and adding an element of lightness and playfulness.

Friendly, delightful demeanor. We care deeply about creating long-term relationships with patients
