Changing Lives, One Person and One Smile at a Time
As an orthodontist, I have the amazing opportunity to change the lives of our patients. When we give someone a smile they love, one that increases their self-esteem and confidence, they carry that with them everywhere they go. Everything they do, every person they encounter, is touched by the smile – and drawn to the person sharing it.
My team members share my vision of changing the lives of others through what we do. We love interacting with our patients and being a part of their lives!
Education and Experience
- Undergraduate studies, Lafayette College
- Doctor of Dental Surgery, New York University College of Dentistry, 1982
- Omicron Kappa Upsilon, Dental Honor Society
- Certificate in Orthodontics, Fairleigh Dickinson University College of Dentistry, 1990
I was a U.S. Navy Dental Officer from 1980 to 1992, serving on active duty from 1982-1988 at the Naval Regional Dental Center, Norfolk, VA and the Naval Training Center, Orlando, FL (where Baldwin Park is today), and aboard USS Shenandoah (AD-44). While attached to the US Naval Reserve, I served in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and later with the 24th Dental Company, 4th Dental Brigade of the US Marines, in Little Creek, VA.
I opened my orthodontic practice in Lake Mary in 1990. For a number of years now, I have been recognized as one of "Orlando's Top Dentists" by Orlando Magazine. This honor is bestowed by votes of my fellow dentists in Central Florida.
Beyond the Office
I enjoy traveling with my wife, Lori, and twin daughters, Sydney and Riley. I support the arts and enthusiasticly attend the Orlando Broadway Series.
My family and I love all animals and adopt abandoned and unwanted pets. Currently, we have a three-legged Yorkie, whom we rescued from a puppy mill and three cats that we found abandoned at two weeks old and nursed them back to health. This menagerie is now a part of our family, in fact, they rule the roost and provide endless entertainment.
I also enjoy biking and running (when not injured), fixing things (it's great therapy!) and pretending I'm a foodie while dining at our local restaurants.
I have served on various boards in the Orlando area. It is important, I believe, for all of us to work to make the world a better place.
