Improving Lives, One Person at a Time
Dentistry is more than just cleaning teeth, repairing a tooth, relieving pain, or making a smile more beautiful. I believe that it’s a way for me to help improve a person’s well-being, both physiologically and psychologically. As a dentist, I am able to help people develop better oral health and feel better about their appearance. We smile more when we are happy, and show our happiness, when we smile more.
Dentistry has an amazing ability to improve someone’s life. Each person is unique, presenting me their own unique situation; as a dentist, I first and foremost address and treat a person’s clinical conditions. However, at the same time, I love to give people what they desire, both carefully and affordably. Today’s advanced technology and treatment options allow me to offer care that’s easier, quicker, and more comfortable than ever. With improved diagnostic imaging, I’m able to intervene earlier and provide minimally invasive care that can save smiles!
We have some of the kindest and most interesting people walk through our doors. I love hearing their stories and learning about them and thrive on our conversations between us. Most of all, I love working in partnership with each person to help everyone attain the smile of their dreams
The 19th Street Dental Team
I have a dream team: each is exceptional in what they do. They actively engage our patients and encourage them to be proactive with the maintenance and improvement of their oral health. Our team is composed of remarkable individuals; they understand that each patient is a person and treat all of them with compassion and empathy.

I’m passionate about learning. Dentistry is constantly changing, with new technologies, materials, and treatments becoming available. It’s my responsibility to remain current on these developments in order to deliver the quality dentistry patients expect and deserve.
Recently I’ve been pursuing continuing education focused on digital and technologically advanced dentistry. I’ve studied CEREC® same-day tooth replacement, Sirona’s 3D radiography, and dental implant placement and advanced aesthetics.

I grew up in London, in the United Kingdom, and moved to Georgia in 1996 for college. I now live with my family in Johns Creek; it’s the perfect place for all of us! I married my college belle shortly after graduating from dental school in 2004, and we have three incredible daughters: Lara, Serena, and Mila.
Much of my spare time revolves around the girls and their activities. When I get the chance, though, I do love getting out on the golf course. I also enjoy traveling and experiencing the world and different cultures. I find I learn so much about people when I learn how they live and navigate the world.
By the way, I’m a big fan of football — the real kind: I’m a huge fan of Arsenal FC!
