I am proud to practice orthodontics in the Somerset and Morris County areas where I am a resident and community member. I have had the wonderful opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients, ranging from age 6 to 75. I enjoy all aspects of the orthodontic profession, but I especially enjoy getting to know our patients and their families, and the satisfaction that comes with each beautiful smile at the end of each orthodontic treatment. My passion is to develop new techniques and use innovative technology to make my patients’ treatment quicker, more esthetic, and as comfortable as possible.

Education

I am a Board Certified Orthodontist, and I attended high school at Seton Hall Prep. I went on to receive my Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Rutgers University. Subsequently, I earned my degree from University of Medicine and Dentistry New Jersey (UMDNJ) where I graduated first in my class and was accepted into Omicron Kappa Upsilon (OKU), the National Dental Honor Society. I was also honored to receive the prestigious OKU Dr. William S. Kramer Award of Excellence among many other awards and scholarships. While in dental school, I enrolled in the honors program in orthodontics, which is limited to one student per dental school class.

I continued my postgraduate studies at Tufts University in Boston, MA where I completed my residency in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. While at Tufts, I once again served as president of my class. I have had the opportunity to publish numerous papers and present my findings at national conferences.

I have also been able to work closely with orthodontists who served on the Alpha Advisory Board of Invisalign®, and I have gained extensive knowledge in clear aligner treatment. I am a member of the staff at Morristown Memorial Hospital where I teach dental residents orthodontic theory and practice. I also serve as a specialist advisor to the Morris Seminars Study Club.

Continuing Education

I am genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of each one of my patients, and I am committed to providing patients with individualized care and attention, ensuring a comfortable environment and wonderful results. I regularly participate in continuing education as a way to stay current with the latest trends and techniques in dentistry and orthodontist. I am a member of several professional organizations, providing opportunities for continuing education.

Smiles In His Spare Time

Outside of the practice, I am an avid sports fan. I enjoy playing softball, golfing, and snowboarding. I can often be spotted at one of the Rutgers sports complexes cheering on the teams! I look forward to working with you and your family, and sharing the wonderful experience of orthodontic treatment and a beautiful new smile.
