Welcome to Avalon Dental
Allow me to introduce myself and share with you my philosophy of dentistry.
I was raised here in Houston and have seen this great city blossom into the diverse metropolis it is today. After graduating high school, I traveled out-of-state for college and dental school. Yet throughout my many travels, my love for Houston endured and I ultimately realized my career and my family would find its home here again.
It was my personal experiences with my family dentist in Houston that inspired me to pursue a career as a dentist. Unfortunately, I soon realized the landscape of dentistry had changed since I left Houston. Insurance companies and the costs of modern dental treatment had squeezed out the neighborhood dentist.
Yet through my experiences in dentistry, I still believe that patient care and education can co-exist with modern dental treatment. In fact, I believe the recent advances in dentistry put a premium on patient education and follow-up, the guiding principles of "old-fashioned" dentistry.
"It has now become my goal to provide state–of–the–art dental treatment with the personal long-term care and compassion found in dentistry from a generation ago."
It was with this goal in mind that I created the Guiding Principles that my practice was founded on. Interestingly by practicing these Principles, I discovered the next generation of dental patients. Patients that value a long-term relationship with their dental team, that value knowledge to help them prevent oral diseases such as cavities, and respect the value of their good oral health. I also discovered these patients have become friends over time which has made being a dentist very rewarding for me.
Guiding Principles to serve our family of patients:
- Promote good oral health
- Prevent disease through education
- Relieve anxiety with patience and communication
- Treat every patient equally
- Treat the patient with honesty and compassion
- Provide the highest level of care
- Stand behind the quality of our care
