When I found out I needed orthodontic treatment at the age of 19, it truly changed my life. My orthodontic experience shaped so much more than just my smile. It made me a more confident person. I enjoy creating beautiful smiles for my patients, meeting challenges head-on, and solving problems with my advanced training and knowledge. Most importantly, I enjoy meeting so many different people from my community.
Prior to dental school, I attended SUNY Stony Brook, where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in biology with a minor in psychology. My Doctorate of Dental Surgery was completed at SUNY Stony Brook as well, in addition to my orthodontic training.
I have a strong interest in new technology and ways that it can improve my practice and patient care. I am always very eager to learn from my colleagues and interested to see what other orthodontists are practicing from all parts of the world. I feel that it is important to be humble and be eager to learn from others. The results of this dedication to continuing my education are better, more effective care for my patients.
