The dentist and his staff are dedicated to serving the public and in particular helping the poor and needy. The practice has made many achievements with serving the local community.

"The dental practice includes a small family of the most friendly and giving people I have ever met. They will do anything for you and treat you as one of the family. The doctor is so generous in his teaching that I have learnt so much more than just Dentistry. The doctor doesn’t just treat the teeth, but the person as a whole, inside and out. The smile on the patient's face at the end of the treatment says it all." Hannah Fullerton
