My enthusiasm for dentistry and orthodontics began at an early age. As the son and grandson of dentists, I grew up with the awareness of the importance of dental health. I was also aware of how my father and grandfather enjoyed their work, and how rewarding they found the relationships they built with their patients. As a specialist in orthodontics, I am fascinated by the science of craniofacial growth and tooth movement, paired with the artistic elements of visualizing and achieving beautiful results.

Continuing education is critical to my ability to provide the most up-to-date, scientifically supported, and effective treatment for my patients. It is also interesting and stimulating, and it provides the opportunity for me to work with and compare treatment methodologies with my peers and colleagues. Since I started practicing orthodontics, I have regularly taken courses sponsored by professional orthodontic associations, both locally and nationally.
