A Passion for Orthodontics
The practice of orthodontics brings balance to my life. It allows me to satisfy my need to be creative and artistic as well as interact with people and add to their lives. Changing smiles truly changes lives. Can you think of a better career?

I’m originally from Oceanside, Long Island, and have called Port Washington home for nearly 20 years. Away from work, I am most often found with my wife Karen, and children, Nina and Ethan, as well as our dog, Dexter. Being with my family and friends is important to me. I also enjoy working out, meditation, and restoring antiques.
