Q: I read that Donald Trump once said that you have “the ability to create the perfect smile.” Are you a perfectionist?
Best Naperville Dentist: When it comes to dentistry, I’m definitely a perfectionist. To me, a smile is a reflection of one’s life – and it can be beautiful.
Q: You were recently asked to serve on the national board of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the world’s largest organization dedicated to cosmetic dental professionals. Can you tell me, in your opinion what makes a good cosmetic dentist?
Best Naperville Dentist: To be a good cosmetic dentist, you must first be a good general dentist. I can’t stress enough the importance of a strong foundation in general dentistry. The more knowledge you have as a dentist, the better you are equipped to treat your patients.
Q: Do you ever see patients with botched cosmetic dentistry work?
Best Naperville Dentist: Unfortunately, sometimes I see patients who have paid a lot of
money to have cosmetic dental work done, only to have to have it undone and then redone by a better skilled professional. Cosmetic dentistry is as much an art as it is a dental procedure, really…
Q: What drew you to cosmetic dentistry?
Best Naperville Dentist: The people. I’ve had patients say they never smile, and then when they first get their teeth fixed, they walk into a room and just beam. It changes how people feel about themselves. And that’s what motivates me to always do my best.
