"If your smile is not becoming to you, then you should be coming to me!"
I enjoy coming to work every day. My enthusiasm for orthodontics has not waned over the years, and I enjoy the challenges and rewards of caring for my patients. Even though our practice has grown, we still give the same attention and care to every patient who comes to us, and treat everyone with respect and compassion.
I love helping to increase a patient’s self-esteem by transforming their smile. When patients are confident in their appearance, you can see the change in every aspect of their life. Not every profession allows a practitioner to make a lasting, positive difference, but orthodontics allows me to do just that, each and every day.
Education and Commitment to Continuing Education
- Adelphi University – Bachelor of Science, biology
- University of Pennsylvania and Columbia University – Doctorate of Dental Surgery
- Columbia University – Orthodontic certificate
Throughout the year, I seek out and participate in continuing education offerings through courses, lectures, and meetings. It is essential that I stay on the leading edge of orthodontics, in order to provide our patients with the most effective treatment options, and using the latest technologies, which shorten treatment times and improve results. I am committed to providing my patients with the best care available.

I am a native of Brooklyn and now call St. James my home. I live with my wife Lorraine and daughters Ella and Lilly. I’m passionate about my family and spending time with them, but I also enjoy physical fitness, woodworking, and golf.
My family and I participate in numerous MADD fundraisers and functions. Our practice is involved with Smiles Change Lives and we also support many local charities and schools.
