To continue to expand my mind with new learning by attending seminars and conferences that enable me to be up to date on the progress of modern dentistry and to bring this further education into my practice as an additional advantage to all my patients.
To relate to my patients on a human level by living true to the values that I hold dear...integrity, understanding, kindness, humility and respect.
