My dedication to orthodontics is inspired by my desire to provide patients with an investment that lasts a lifetime. In addition to orthodontics, my focus has also included eliminating the headaches and migraines that can be caused by a bad bite.
I began my career at Carnegie Mellon University and obtained my Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD) in 1997. In addition to my DMD I also obtained my Masters in Business Administration, (MBA) and Masters in Public Health (MPH) at the University of Pittsburgh. I received my Orthodontic Masters of Science in Dentistry from Saint Louis University in 2005.
I continue to study in order to stay up-to-date with the constantly evolving practice of orthodontics, particularly in the areas of self-ligating braces, TMJ and obstructive sleep apnea.
Outside the Office
Outside the practice of Orthodontics, my passion is God, my family, and my patients. My hobbies include boxing, golf and racquetball.
