Next to being a parent, I feel that pediatric dentistry is the most rewarding thing that I do. It truly gives me a great sense of satisfaction to share the feeling of accomplishment that our young patients feel after they get through a dental appointment. I believe that our children are individuals that require a little extra care and patience especially when it comes to dental care and understand the feelings that children have towards going to the dentist. I work towards giving them a comfortable experience and always take into consideration each child’s individual needs from the first time that I meet with them.
I grew up in Queens and Long Island, NY and have always had an interest in dentistry since my own childhood dental visits. My motivation to work with children had stemmed from my mother, a board certified pediatrician who had encouraged me to combine my interests and pursue a career as a pediatric dentist. I attended the Tufts University of Dental Medicine in Boston, MA for my dental degree and then the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ (now known as Rutgers Dental School) to obtain post-graduate specialty training in pediatric dentistry. I am a board certified pediatric dentist by the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association.
I reside in Rye Brook, NY with my wife Wendy and my two daughters, Alexa and Claire. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising, and following my daughter’s musical interests such as her involvement with the Norwalk Youth Symphony and Greater Westchester Youth Orchestra.
I am happy to be a part of Harmony Dental Group and look forward to using my experience and knowledge in giving your child the most positive and comfortable dental experience that I can.
