The relationship I develop with my patients is based on listening, understanding, and caring for your needs.

You are not alone. Most people experience anxiety when they go to a dentist, and that fear prevents as many as 1 in 5 Americans from receiving proper dental care. I treat people who are afraid of the dentist.

We’ll start by just talking. Anxiety often stems from the lack of control that patients experience in the dentist’s chair. Your treatment starts with us talking about what can be done to make you more comfortable.

I understand that everyone responds to dental procedures in a different way. I am serious about pain control and take the time to be sure you are comfortable.

If all else fails, know that sedation is an option. You can take a little pill about an hour before coming to the office, snooze through the visit, and wake up refreshed with improved dental health.

I am pleased to serve as your dentist in Ithaca, New York, and the nearby areas, including Lansing, Cortland, Trumansburg, Newfield, Enfield, Spencer, Candor, and Tompkins County, New York.
