I strive to provide the highest standards of orthodontic care to my patients and maintain memberships in a number of vital organizations in order to stay on the cutting edge of changes and technological advances.

I was born and raised with my three brothers in Waterbury, Connecticut. My father and two older brothers paved the way for a career in medicine, but I decided early on that I wanted to help people smile.

After receiving my Bachelor of Science degree and graduating cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science in 1980, I attended dental school at Boston University, graduating in the top 5% of my class in 1984. While attending my orthodontic residency at Boston University, I was admitted to the National Dental Honor Society and published my research, “Orthodontic Treatment and How it Relates to TMJ” in the American Journal of Orthodontics
