As an orthodontist, I am able to use the magic of orthodontics to change my patients’ lives. Of course, it’s not magic at all; rather it’s hard work on both my and my patients’ part to achieve the smile of their dreams. I love partnering with my patients and their families, getting to know them throughout the course of their treatment, and in the end, seeing all their beautiful smiles.
We often think of the oral health benefits of orthodontic treatment, but there are psychological perks, too! As patients’ teeth straighten, I can see their happiness and confidence grow. As they smile more, it makes me feel good about what I get to do every day. I don’t think that I will ever tire of that feeling.
Our team works together to give the patients the very best in orthodontic care, and our office is always full of laughter! They go above and beyond to make our patients’ experience in the office as amazing as possible.
I have been blessed with great patients and I look forward to seeing every one of them, and showing them how much fun orthodontics can be.
I attended Fairfield University, where I completed my Bachelor of Science. I continued on to the University of Connecticut, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine. My orthodontic specialty certificate and Master of Dental Science were completed at the University of Connecticut in 1988.
Continuing education is an important aspect of my practice. I take numerous classes and attend seminars on the newest and most effective orthodontic technology in order to offer my patients state-of-the-art treatments and results in the shortest period of time. I am also a member of several organizations that allow me to learn from and collaborate with fellow professionals in my field:
- Massachusetts Dental Society
- American Dental Association
- American Association of Orthodontists
- Western Massachusetts Implant Study Group
Because I live and work in the same community, being involved means a lot to me. During National Children’s Dental Health Month, I give numerous presentations to youngsters on the importance of dental care. I am also an active sponsor of the Ludlow Boys and Girls Club.
Outside the Office
I am a health and fitness enthusiast and thoroughly enjoy all forms of skiing, swimming, and running. I’ve even completed Ironman triathlons in Lake Placid, New York and Sanduski, Ohio. During my down time, I love to relax with friends and family.
