After twelve years of practice as an orthodontist, I never get tired of seeing the changes that take place in a patient’s smile during treatment. Really understanding where the patient is coming from regarding oral health, and building a strong relationship with him or her along the course of treatment, is a rewarding experience I wouldn’t trade for anything. The people and the smiles are why I do this and have remained passionate about my profession throughout the years.
I grew up in Manalapan, NJ and started down the path of orthodontics by earning a Bachelor of Science from Pennsylvania State University. I went on to earn my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Temple University School of Dentistry, where I graduated as the top student in my class and was elected into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Honor Society. I remained at Temple to complete an orthodontic residency program and earn both a specialty certificate and a Master of Science in oral biology. I also maintain a staff position at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ.
I’m proud to say I’ve been voted one of New Jersey’s top orthodontists in New Jersey Monthly Magazine, and a favorite of families in Northern New Jersey in New Jersey Family Magazine. Our team is outstanding too: With more than 100 years of combined orthodontic experience, they are second to none. My office is fun and casual but we’re serious about what we do. We’ve even been honored by the New York Jets as the team’s official orthodontic healthcare giver.
Away from work I enjoy playing golf and softball, physical fitness, and spending time with my family. My wonderful wife Jennifer and I have two sons, Ian and Jordan, and a cat named Cameron.
It’s my goal to help you achieve the smile you want utilizing functional and aesthetically pleasing treatment. There is no age limit on orthodontic treatment, and we encourage anyone interested in improving his or her appearance, self-esteem, and oral health to inquire further. Please give us a call or stop by either our Madison or West Caldwell, NJ office. I look forward to meeting you!
