Dr. Ronald Abaro
"I tell my team every day that we are so blessed to be in a profession that gives back so much. As unique and challenging as the healthcare industry is, I receive so much gratification in helping others alleviate pain and live a healthier lifestyle.
It's not surprising how many people are afraid of dentistry, and it's always due to a bad experience. Unfortunately, it's the patient who continues with pain and deteriorating overall health. Our goal is to help patients by listening to their individual needs and educating them to take control of their condition. So little by little, they can live a higher quality of life...and maintain it!
And if I'm lucky, they'll teach someone else how to achieve that same health and happiness. A little patience, empathy, and encouragement go a very long way in an otherwise scary situation.
