I'm a trained dentist from Washington University Dental School in St. Louis, Missouri. Over there, I spent four years. After that, I pursued clinical excellence by doing surgical courses and invested millions of dollars in continuing education that made me a very skilled professional and well adept in the intricate procedures which we do in this office. The continuing education is the core of my competency. What we do in this office is smile makeovers, full mouth rehabs, and implants. It's all based on my clinical education, which I've done for years and years—to be exact, 30 years I've been doing this. It's involving doing residencies in oral surgery and doing surgical training for at least 30 years has got me where I am right now.
