I have enjoyed the privilege and challenge of practicing dentistry since my graduation from UCLA in 1980. My career has basically been devoted to three elements of practice; patient care, teaching students in the dental schools, and consulting work for colleagues. While my life’s work has always involved all three of these areas of my specialty, I have been more or less involved with these aspects at different times during my career. I am now very happy to be focusing strictly on patient care in my practice at Image Dental and Orthodontics.
I have had the honor of caring for tens of thousands of patients during my career in the several practices that I built in both Southern California and here in Nevada. Continuing education has been a huge part of my life and I constantly attend classes to improve and expand my skills. I have received special training in oral surgery, endodontics, prosthodontics, implantology, cosmetic dentistry and most of the other elements of dental care that are often provided by specialists. I take special pleasure in personally providing the actual care to my patients so that I do not need to ask them to see other doctors for these procedures. I take pride in taking complex restorative cases from inception through treatment and into recall care.
As a dental consultant and as a professor at the dental school, one of my subjects has been the management of dental practices. I have actively been teaching dentists and dental students how to manage and merge both the business and clinical aspects of their dental practices so as to provide exceptional clinical care and experience for their patients. I am so happy to say that my practice at Image Dental fits this model of excellence. I’m surrounded by superb staff members who give exceptional care to my patients in a both efficient, time conscious and most importantly kind and caring environment.
After four years of teaching and practicing full time at UNLV School of Dental Medicine, I am so happy to be returning to full time clinical care for my patients. At Image Dental, I am allowed to concentrate completely on providing the best possible, most advanced dentistry to my patients. I have remarkable team members that take care of all of the other elements of our practice, providing all of the business support that I need so that we can focus on giving our patients not just the very best dentistry, but also the most comfortable and pleasurable experience possible in the dental environment. The state-of-the-art facility with all of the latest equipment and materials gives me the chance to perform all of my beautiful procedures as quickly and comfortably as is humanly possible resulting in extraordinary dentistry for my patients.
