At an early age, I loved to build models and work with my hands. In my childhood, my parents encouraged me to seek a career that would utilize my skills. I first started to learn about dentistry when I joined a Scouting Explorers group with a friend when I was a teenager. Through those meetings I developed an interest in dentistry and decided to make it my career choice.
I graduated from Fairleigh Dickinson University Summa Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree focused in Biochemistry. I then received my Dental degree from Georgetown University School of Dentistry. I later went on to complete a General Practice Residency program at Morristown Memorial Hospital.
I have built on my passion for dentistry and expanded on my skills by taking many continuing education courses. It has helped me to learn about many different technologies in dentistry including dental implants, advanced restorative and esthetic techniques and how to treat sleep apnea with oral appliances.
I am an attending in The Department of Restorative Dentistry at the Robert Wood Johnson/Barnabas Medical Center in New Brunswick. Here I volunteer my time to teach residents the skills that I have learned over the years.
To keep up with current innovations in dentistry, I participate in study groups with other dentists and specialists monthly.
I am a member of the American Dental Association, The New Jersey Dental Association, The Academy of General Dentistry and The American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.
My hobbies include photography, traveling, bicycling, and reading. I also enjoy listening to all genres of music, going to concerts, watching movies and spending time with my family. I enjoy learning about classic cars as well.
