I consider myself upbeat and passionate about my work. I try to deliver the highest quality care to each and every one of my patients in a compassionate and respectful manner. I look forward to meeting you and helping you actualize your dental potential.
I am a specialist in periodontics and dental implants. I graduated from the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in 1999. Since dental surgery and dental implants were always of great interest to me, it seemed only natural to continue my education and obtain a specialty certificate in periodontics from the same institution in 2002.
Since graduating, I have maintained a full-time practice in New Jersey, specializing in periodontal surgery, periodontal plastic surgery, bone grafting and bone augmentation procedures, sinus elevation procedures, and dental implants.
I am currently president of my local dental society, where I have also served as vice president and secretary, and have been an active member since 2002. Education has always been a priority in my life; therefore, upon completion of my specialty training, I accepted a part-time faculty appointment as an associate clinical professor of periodontics at the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine. I continued teaching part-time for more than ten years, but recently had to step down, as the demands in my private practice have grown. In 2010 and 2013, I had the honor of being named one of “New Jersey’s Top Periodontists” by New Jersey Monthly Magazine.
I was born and raised in New York City, and now reside in Northern New Jersey. I have been married for 15 years, and have four energetic and vivacious children, the youngest two being fraternal twins. In my spare time, I enjoy playing softball and spending time with my children.
