After having been a general dental officer in the USAF for over 4 years, I completed specialty training in oral & maxillofacial surgery at the Air Force's largest hospital: Wilford Hall USAF Medical Center, Lackland AFB, TX. Currently in private practice in Tampa, Florida since 1989, the areas I am most interested in professionally are management of wisdom teeth, removal and replacement of back teeth with dental implants, and general anesthesia. I particularly enjoy working with teens because it is the easiest and least risky time to deal with wisdom teeth as well as the fact that they keep me perpetually young. It has been my goal to create for them the best experience with regard to their wisdom teeth as possible.My interest in general anesthesia over my career has been in creating a technique that renders the greatest control and the shortest, most comfortable recovery from an IV anesthetic. The result of my work over the past 10 years is that of creating a technique called QuickRecover IV Anesthesia that accomplishes each of these goals.Hobbies: photography, music (performance: oboe), outdoor activities including biking, hiking, golf, etc.
