I knew what I wanted to become at the age of 18. Orthodontics was my path to help people gain self-esteem by improving one of the most recognizable features – their smile! Seeing thousands of patients improve their smiles and gain newfound self-confidence has been tremendously rewarding to me over the past 35 years.
I have always been committed to finding the newest, most innovative ways to make improving smiles a simpler and more streamlined process. When I started practicing orthodontics, the only way to improve a smile was to have orthodontic care that required the use of braces. Since then, there have been tremendous advancements in the use of braces and the emergence of clear aligner treatment with Invisalign®. It is exciting to be an orthodontist at this time of technological advancement, and I am proud to give my patients the very best care – the care they deserve.”
Education and Continuing Education
I received my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1971, then earned my orthodontic degree in 1973 from Eastman Dental Center, a part of the University of Rochester. I served in the United States Air Force as a major from 1973 to 1975.
Since orthodontics is a rapidly changing profession, I understand that it is vital to remain current. As an Invisalign Premier Preferred Provider, I attend all Invisalign seminars, in addition to courses that focus on traditional orthodontics. Staying up-to-date ensures my ability to provide patients with the latest techniques available–including the latest technique to drastically reduce your time in orthodontics, Propel.
