Through her training and experience in complex care, Dr. Amy developed her skills in advanced restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry and takes special care with treating dental phobic and anxious patients. In addition, she is well-versed in complex prosthodontics, which is a fascinating area of dentistry that focuses exclusively on designing, fabricating and fitting extremely natural-looking artificial teeth.
