“My practice philosophy as a dentist is to make sure that my patients feel safe and comfortable. With my team, we will ensure that you are educated on your current state of oral health and that you know all of your options. I believe that this way you will be able to make the best decisions for your individual needs. I promise to listen to your needs. I promise to follow principals of Best Practice and to stay current in my education to provide you with the best possible care. I look forward to meeting you and your families and friends and helping all of you with your lifelong dental needs.” – Dr. Kassam
