I will evaluate your particular problem, and decide with you what the most appropriate treatment for that problem should be. My goal is to help you to understand your problem, and advise you about the treatment options. There are often different ways to treat dental problems and conditions. My job is to determine what is bothering you the most, define what your problem is, and explain to you the benefits and consequences of the different treatment options. Together, we can decide what will be the best treatment plan, and then proceed with that.
Hobbies: Camping, fishing, and spending time with my family.
Dr. Lura Orsino My fulfillment comes from seeing a patient smile, especially after being self-conscious about their teeth or afraid of coming to the dentist. I especially enjoy treating older children and adolescents. I strive to offer you an exceptional patient experience that allows me to treat you with collaboration instead of salesmanship and badgering.
Every dentist must be able to communicate with patients without stress or conflict.
