Why I Focus on Biological Dentistry
The truth is, I could not passively stand by anymore, waiting for my patients and fellow health care providers to make healthier decision in their lives. I know that most people are either misinformed about or unaware of the risks of traditional dental practices and the benefits of biological dental care.
If you knew what I have learned about the dangers of mercury amalgam fillings, fluoride, toxic root canals and gum disease, your decisions about dental health care would be quite easy to make.
For example, there are many physicians that report nearly 80% of all illnesses are related to infections, toxicities, and imbalances in the mouth.
I choose to focus on biological dentistry because I believe we are at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the practice of dentistry. A transformation that will shift the focus of dental practices away from the emergency treatment of symptoms towards compassionate, comprehensive and preventative biological care that truly embraces the philosophy of Hippocrates: “First do no harm”. In this type of health oriented dental practice Dentists will become patients Primary Care Physicians.

At five years old, I told my kindergarten teacher I was going to be a singing dentist in Hawaii. Well one out of three isn’t too bad! While I may not be crooning on the beaches of Oahu, I have still managed to bring a unique approach to my work.
After graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park with a BA in Fine Arts and a BS in Biology, I spent a year at the Maryland Institute College of Art in their jewelry-making department. When visiting a supply store for one of my courses, I made an unexpected discovery that changed my life – Who would have thought that a jewelry supply store also sold dental instruments? At that point, my inner five year old reawakened and here I am now.
As a dentist and an artist, I bring a unique eye to the field of dentistry. I like to think that I could have made Mona Lisa smile! When I’m not working on masterpieces in people’s mouths, I still return to more traditional artistic mediums. Screen-printing and painting are still my favorites, and my apartment is fully decorated with my work. While my home collection may not be on public view, I’d be happy to make you an original (dental) work of art!
