About

Bio

After graduating from Boston University in 1999 with a Doctor of Medical Dentistry degree, I relocated to sunny South Florida and became the Chief Resident at Nova Southeastern University and earned my AEGD(Advanced Education General Dentistry). I have enjoyed volunteering and teaching other Dentists who volunteer, as well as residents, at Community Smiles Dental Clinic, where I served on the board of directors for over ten years.  I also appeared on CBS News with Cynthia Demos to discuss new technology in Dentistry.  As a committed Dentist, I take pride in my work while providing excellent service for my patients. I continuously study different products to help increase the comfort of each individual treatment. I love being a dentist and really care about all my patients. I am devoted to helping as many people as I can. My goal is to educate my patients to understand the source of their problems not just treat them.

Specialties
