She passionately believes in leading a holistic and healthy lifestyle to boost immunity and combat periodontal disease.


Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth and are embarrassed by the need to wear a removable denture, then a dental implant is for you. It can be placed in a way that it appears natural and harmonious with your natural teeth.

Gum Treatment

If you have tender or bleeding gums, pus from gums, persistent bad breath, and gum recession, you may be showing the signs and symptoms of gum disease. If left untreated, it will lead to gum loss, shaky teeth, and eventual tooth loss.

Aesthetic Gum Procedures

A wonderful smile makes a lasting impression. It is not just the colour of your teeth that makes a great smile. Tooth length, which are affected by your gums, is just as important in designing the perfect smile for you.
