“I am very passionate about my work as a family dentist. I chose to concentrate on cosmetic dentistry because of the amazing effect a beautiful, functional smile can have on a person’s confidence and self-esteem. I appreciate the complex, intimate relationship between oral health and complete health of a person, and pay special attention to patient’s education and treatment selection based on each individual’s nuances. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and consider myself so lucky to have found my calling as a “dental artist”. My patients are the reason I come to work every day, and I am thankful for the trust they place in me and my team.” -Dr. Nadia P. Groom Dr. Nadia P.
