Smile Aurora Dental was born as a culmination of my past experiences in the dental field.
During the last 10 years of practicing dentistry, I worked in a variety of clinical offices with each one having a different practice module. For example, my first office was overly aesthetically driven (think veneers left and right!). Another office focused more on maximizing profit; I was constantly pressured to overproduce. My third office was great until I witnessed the owner submitting questionable insurance claims —I quit very soon after that. I even tried out corporate (chain) dentistry and found myself exhausted with the number of patients that were jammed into my schedule each day.
In short, I was dissatisfied with my life as a dentist, and decided enough was enough; I commenced my journey to find my dental niche. In the fall of 2016, I moved out to Colorado and created Smile Aurora Dental.
Smile Aurora Dental is founded on the following three principles: transparency, patient-focused, and quality-driven. We place emphasis on preventative care and saving what nature has gifted you. Meaning, we don't overprescribe treatment. We don’t push you, nor do we rush you. Your dental well-being is our top priority and the journey to how you get there is uniquely yours.
This is my niche.
