A people person by nature whose core values are family-oriented, his aim is to make people happy, which is why he strives for excellence no matter what is in front of him.
“I never understood why both my parents were so attention-detailed until I started watching them perform their artistry in dentistry,” he says.
A talented artist in his own right, Dr. Peter is praised for his compassion and chair-side manner; he takes great pride in being an excellent listener for his patients.
“The thing I love most about dentistry is not only the art of it, but the science that goes on behind the scenes and trying to integrate the two together without compromising either one,” he says. “I also really enjoy meeting the different personalities of everyone who sits in the chair and getting to understand people better.”
In his spare time, when he is not traveling, Dr. Peter is committed to good physical health and enjoys working out.
