Where he came from:
Clinton Township, MI was his dental home prior to having the opportunity to work here at Komendera and Associates in September of 2015.
Dentistry as a calling:
He first wanted to get into the field of dentistry when he had his best friend’s father, who was a practicing dentist at the time, came into his high school on career day. They discussed the advances dentistry has gone through in the past 30 years and about being a part of a career that changes self-esteem, body image, and therefore, lives.
Personal Philosophy of Care:
“I am honored that you are considering me for your care and I do not take that responsibility lightly. Intricate attention to detail and using state-of-the-art dental materials while keeping the patient’s best interests are both very important to me. Patient’s put their trust in my hands, and it is in their best interest for me to deliver the most accurate diagnosis and treatment as possible.”
