I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and after obtaining my Bachelors Degree in Biology at Brooklyn College I attended NYU College of Dentistry and did a general practice residency at the Brooklyn VA Hospital. I was in private practice in NY from 1979-2013 and since then in Palo Alto, CA. In 1984 the Academy of General Dentistry honored me with their prestigious Fellowship, F.A.G.D. I have had numerous articles published in Dental Journals and have lectured since 2010 to Dentists nationally and internationally on technology integration in the Dental office and Social Media Marketing for Dentists. I have always been an early adopter of technology. My office has been computerized since 1986, we have had digital x-rays since 1998, CAD-CAM same day crowns, inlays and veneers since 2009 and our office has been completely paperless since 2005.
