I brought my kids to Kindle Dental and we loved our experience.  The front staff was very helpful in explaining our insurance benefits when we arrived for our first appointment.  The dentist was very caring and explained each procedure as the appointment moved along.  We will definitely go back to our follow up appointment in 6 months.  Kindle Dental is the place to go to keep your family of smiles beautiful.

"The field of dentistry offers me a unique opportunity to help improve people's health, comfort, self-esteem, and appearance all at once through caring for and treating their oral health needs. I was trained by the nation's top specialists in the US Air Force and my passions are in art, health, and nutrition. I believe this gives me the best opportunity to be able to positively impact people's lives through dentistry.
One of the most gratifying experiences for me is to help alleviate a person's pain. When someone visits the office in extreme dental pain, my goal is to help improve their comfort and eliminate their pain before they leave."

"I work hard to tailor my treatment to each individual patient's specific needs and wants, in order to provide them the best service that they are seeking. I strive for perfection in every treatment that I render."

"I have a high ethical standard of care and I treat every case as if I were treating my own family members. One of my favorite aspects of dentistry is helping my patients to overcome their dental anxieties and fears, so that they become more confident and willing to seek care in the future. I often notice a big difference in both my patients' confidence and their health between the first and last dental visit, which is extremely gratifying for me."

In the summer of 2008, I joined a volunteer dental service team to Bylakuppe, South India, which had deeply influenced me. We mostly served Tibetan children, to be more specific, refugees that had escaped from China for religious freedom. They were so young in age, but incredibly mature mentally because they had experienced more than adults normally do. By sharing the individual stories of their journey to the land we stood, I could clearly see the perseverance and strong will from their eyes. They risked their life crossing the magnificent Himalayas and tightly secured border for better education and pious religion. Besides dental services and oral health instructions, sports and magic tricks had brought us closer. It’s not only our friendship, concern, encouragement, but most importantly, it’s the love from the children that had made the volunteer service so meaningful and so unforgettable. As I cherish the serving experience, I start to realize that it’s such a great privilege to help others. At the same time, the more powerful you are, the more people could be possibly benefited by you. I’m lucky enough to be a dentist and I should certainly improve my professional knowledge to help others. Like the perseverance of the children, I have worked hard to make progress and strived for better dental skills since then.

“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” As I constantly visited the international and domestic remote areas for volunteer works, I felt so rich and joyful. It had deepened my determination to help others in need, especially for cleft lips and palate babies. There are many patients with cleft lip and palate but with limited institution providing medical assist. For the patient’s family or caregiver, it’s never easy to take good care of them. In order to have a better surgery outcome, I demonstrated the Pre-Surgical Nasal Alveolar Molding (PNAM) appliance. With PNAM device, it is possible to provide better oral care for them and improve quality of life. I also visited schools and nursing homes for dental check-up and oral hygiene instructions regularly. We had a close relationship with the community and the government. I believe by doing this, more shiny teeth could possibly be seen and I’m willing to consider it as my lifelong responsibility.

Dentistry gives me the opportunity to change someone’s life through their smile. Whether a patient is in pain, is uncomfortable with their smile, or simply wants to change the appearance of their teeth, I can help them get out of pain while also building their confidence, and that gives me immense joy.

I love being able to make a difference in the lives of my patients and helping them get out of pain and become confident with their smile.

I believe in putting the needs of my patients first. Every patient is different, and I, as a practitioner, need to take time to listen to their needs and provide them with care that is filled with compassion, integrity, and love.

I hope to give my patients a wonderful experience while treating them with the best care possible.

I love to bake, play the guitar, play tennis, and read. I also love to be involved in my church worship ministry by singing and playing the guitar!

I think all procedures are important!
