To our referring veterinary colleagues I commit to providing my best work while balancing the needs of the patient and its owner. I hope you consider me a trusted extension of your care to your clients and I will work towards confirming that trust.
To pet owners - I am also a pet owner. I know the place they hold in our lives, whether they are working dogs or pillow pets. I will try and explain what your pet needs so that you see the value in entrusting them to my care. I believe that every pet deserves a comfortable mouth that is optimized so that it stays healthy with minimal interventions.
