Dr. Peter developed a very early interest in dentistry. He remembers going to the dentist at the age of 10 and being intrigued with the equipment and procedures.
He also remembers that freezing the patient for procedures was not commonplace and he contemplated, even then, that there must be a better way to do procedures in a more painless manner. This is still true for Peter today, as he considers pain management a treatment priority.
It became evident throughout his school years that the sciences, in particular health sciences, were his forte. Initially, Peter contemplated a career in medicine, but it was his desire for creativity, his attention to detail, and artistic expression that eventually lead him to apply to dental school instead. Dentistry offered the perfect mix of art and science that satisfied his passion for detail, problem-solving, and esthetic improvement. As his career in dentistry has evolved, this has become even more apparent with his focus on cosmetic and esthetic dental procedures.
Dentistry fuels Peter's passion for ongoing learning.
Treatment updates, the development of new materials, and dental techniques offer the means to facilitate his sense of inquiry, motivation, and priority to keep current in dental trends. He has pursued additional education in orthodontics, endodontics (root canals), and Botox.
