About

Bio

<strong><em>"For me, orthodontics is about more than just creating amazing smiles; it is about forming strong relationships and friendships with the patients, families, and dental colleagues. I want to ensure everyone enjoys their entire orthodontic experience as well as the beautiful and lasting result!"</em></strong> <h2>Education and experience </h2> I grew up in Pittsburgh, and my tinkering and technical interests during my early years led me to Duke University where I received degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering/Materials Science. As I also wanted to be involved in healthcare, I enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania where I received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine and was Chief Resident while obtaining my specialty Certificate in Orthodontics. In addition to private practice, I am on faculty at the University of Pennsylvania in the Department of Orthodontics. I also lecture locally with various study groups, as well as internationally/nationally with the <em>Complete Clinical Orthodontics </em>Course and Roth-Williams Center for Functional Occlusion . I strongly believe that it is important to teach and to help raise the standard of care for our community as well as for the entire profession, and thoroughly enjoy any opportunity to do so. In the office I have an interest in research and ensuring that I practice what I teach. I want to make sure that we are using the best and most effective methods to deliver the highest level of orthodontic care. At the office, this ideal is definitely being put to work! You will see that we are constantly improving and developing techniques to allow for better precision and improved orthodontic treatment. As a result, we are proud to hold United States patents on several of the devices we use every day. <h2>Outside the office</h2> Outside of practicing, teaching, and attending dental society meetings, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two crazy cats, Tomato and Basil. I have a passion for model railroading, and also like to golf, workout at the gym, and "play chef" in the kitchen.

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.
