Meet Dr. Nwokorie
“As a dentist I feel privileged to be entrusted with my patients’ oral health. I take caring for each person very seriously because I view good oral health as a gateway to an ideal overall health. Besides achieving a natural look for teeth, my goal is to make them function well now and for years to come.” — Dr. Nwokorie
