As a restorative and surgical dentist, I truly enjoy working with all of the wonderful people who come in and out of our practice. I have a passion for people and always work to create a unique experience for my patients that is second to none. It is an honor to work with you to help you achieve the highest level of health that you deserve and a smile that you desire.
Having received my dental degree from an Ivy League institution, The University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental Medicine, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and serving four years in the United States Navy as a Dental Officer, my educational foundation in basic dental training had a strong start.
In order to further advance my clinical skill set and provide my patients with the highest care possible, I have completed advanced education all over the country. Over the last decade, I have received advanced post-graduate training at the Kois Center in Seattle, the Nobel Institute in Los Angeles, and the Pikos Institute outside of Tampa, Florida, to name a few. The advanced treatment results I have helped my patients obtain in the areas of cosmetic, restorative and implant dentistry have been honored with post-graduate accolades, the highest of which came when I was awarded Fellowship status in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI).
Locally, I have been the past president of the Virginia Beach Dental Study Club providing local dentists continuing education opportunities as well as a lecture circuit speaker for Nobel Biocare, one of the world’s leaders in the field of innovative dental implants and implant-based restorations.
I have called Virginia Beach home since 2009. This is where I met my wife, Jessica, who is a Virginia Beach native, and together we have 2 young children, Cash and Cameron. Together we enjoy the beach, golf and spending time on the tennis courts. I am passionate about doing my part to help grow our local community. As such, I am a board member for the Virginia Gentleman Foundation, a non-profit organization based out of Virginia Beach who is a leading fundraiser for the National ALS Society as well as developing other projects and initiatives to support the local community.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit about me. I look forward to meeting you and helping you discover all the benefits of a beautiful, healthy smile.
