If you are looking for an answer as to why your face still hurts, why you can’t open your mouth widely, or chew without jaw pain, or what options are available to address snoring and/or Sleep Apnea, you have come to the right place. My practice has for over 25 years catered to patients looking for someone that not only listens to what they have to say but also possesses the knowledge and compassion to get these problems under control.
Our relationship will start with a conversation and continue with a mutual sharing of ideas and strategies that will help you get on the path to recovery or simply address your concerns about a specific problem that has lingered. If you are willing to participate in the process of getting better, this is the place for you.

The Office Philosophy
Initial diagnostic evaluations are scheduled for one hour. During this time, I have the opportunity to listen to the patients’ chief complaints and history, conduct a physical examination, obtain necessary radiographs, and render a judgment with regard to diagnosis and plan of action.
I am the only provider in my three offices. Individual attention is the hallmark of the practice. I often act as a quarterback with your other doctors, coordinating medical consultations and/or treatment efforts in independent offices.
