Art and Dentistry

The artist and the doctor of dentistry are very different endeavors yet each borrows attributes of the other. Science finds its way into the making of the artist’s creations and creativity has found its way into the modern practice of dentistry.

For more than thirty years my passion has been dentistry.

“A lifelong interest in art has inspired the wedding of creativity into the practice of my chosen profession.”
