A Personal Note from Dr. Rizvi
“Dentistry is an awesome profession. It has allowed me to make a difference in so many lives. It gives me great personal satisfaction to relieve someone's dental fears and anxieties and stabilize their mouth so that they know that they will never have to experience dental pain again."
"It is an awesome feeling to complete a long, detailed smile makeover and watch as the patient gains the confidence to smile again. Patients have told me that their outlook on life has changed and others have come back to thank me for job promotions and new relationships that have come about since their smile makeover."
"Each patient has personal needs that have to be discussed with them and worked out. I enjoy taking the time necessary to discover what my patients want and then I strive to deliver to them the best dentistry with the latest technologies. I am confident that with my knowledge and experience, the office atmosphere and my friendly, professional staff you will feel at ease and will be able to get the dentistry that is right for you."
