About

Bio

Graduated from UMDNJ in 1994. Practiced general dentistry in NJ for 14 years, then relocated to Delaware in 2007. Presently in partnership with Michael Butterworth, in Dagsboro DE. This is a rural area, so we see patients from all walks of life. It has been very challenging and rewarding.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
