I attended Colgate University before continuing my education at the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine. After completing a General Practice Residency in The United States Public Health Service, I returned to Philadelphia to begin my private practice career. After 22 years, I decided to move to Florida and have practiced here since 1998.
I maintain memberships with the American Dental Association, The Academy of Osseointegration (AO), The International Academy of Adhesive Dentistry (IAAD), The International Team of Implantology (ITI), and I am a distinguished Fellow of The Academy of General Dentistry.
I had the honor to serve on the Board of Directors of AO for seven years and am currently on the board of IAAD.
I look forward to helping you achieve your optimal level of health by seeing the whole you and not just your teeth. One of the ways I do that is by focusing on your sleep quality. Our facial structures and their development play a significant role in our ability to breathe well and sleep efficiently. In addition, I pay great attention to how your teeth generate forces against themselves and interact with the muscles and jaw joint (TMJ). I also love the opportunity to enhance your smile when that is what you desire.
In 1974 I married my wife, Merle. We have two children Emily and Noah, and one amazing granddaughter, Greer. In addition to my family, I am passionate about Philadelphia sports teams and playing golf.
