Mission StatEment

My practice is grounded on my belief in, and commitment to, providing complete and comprehensive care to the people and families of Brooklyn, NY. Through continuing education and participation in courses both as a student and as a mentor, I bring the highest level of treatment modalities to my patients. At the same time, I approach my patients as individuals, addressing their full physical, nutritional, and life needs. My goal is to help my patients make the best decisions for their overall dental health.

Connecting and communicating with my patients has been key in accomplishing this goal and will be central to my practice at Gowanus Dental. My hope is that my patients leave feeling comfortable and knowing that all of their needs and concerns have been heard and addressed.
