I love my profession. I enjoy coming to work every day and treating my patients. It is amazing to interact with so many different people, all with unique personalities, throughout the day, and I find our conversations to be fascinating and stimulating. Each morning, I wake knowing that I am going to bring a smile to someone’s face that day. What more motivation does one need?
I enjoy being able to help people, which increases every patient’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Along the way, I get to know each patient and develop a relationship with them. Those exchanges we have, and the connections we make, are rewarding.
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
- Binghamton University – Bachelor of Science, biology
- Stony Brook University – Doctorate of Dental Surgery
- Vanderbilt University – Orthodontic certificate
I believe it is imperative that I stay abreast of the latest advances in oral healthcare and orthodontics. Being able to continue to provide my patients with the most up-to-date, proven treatment modalities and processes is essential, so I attend numerous meetings and take a number of courses each year to stay informed.
I am a native of Massapequa and have two sons, CJ and Bryce. I enjoy trivia, video games, and traveling, and am a fan of the Mets, Jets, Islanders, and Knicks.
My girlfriend and I are very involved with Team in Training, which raises money for leukemia and lymphoma, and I walk annually with MADD.
