I am extremely fortunate to carry on a legacy started by Manny Tress, D.D.S. almost 50 years ago. Manny and I worked together for 10 years, transitioning from an associateship, to partnership and into Manny's retirement almost 6 years ago. The philosophy of providing quality and personalized care prevails in our practice. I am very fortunate to be on the staff at the University of Pennsylvania, and have earned several teaching awards at this prestigious university. The opportunity to teach residents and collaborate with my colleagues I have at Penn has greatly enriched my professional life and influences how I practice periodontics and implantology. I have also been fortunate to have traveled the world, lecturing in Europe, South America and the U.S. The many peers I've met at these congresses have given my tremendous opportunities to share ideas and learn from their experiences. On a personal level, I am married and have 3 beautiful children who keep me grounded and bring me so much pride. I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people in the world to have such personal and professional good fortune.

The number of answers this doctor has agreed with.
A 19-year-old female asked:
Infection: Pus is an absolute sign of infection. You may have a bacterial infection. I suggest you see your primary care physician promptly for a diagnosis, which may include a painless culture & a regimen of the appropriate antibiotic. You should recover quickly.
A 28-year-old male asked:
Doubtful: Much more likely that acid reflux will cause bad breath, as well as increase risk of oral pharyngeal cancer & ulcers. I'd take the prescribed medication unless advised otherwise by your doctor.
A 32-year-old member asked:
Hard tissue: Ct scans are a form of x-rays. They are most appropriate to identify hard tissue structures like bone, teeth, other calcifications. Mri's are images (not x-rays) & better suited for evaluation of soft tissues, like organs, etc.
