About

Bio

After graduating New York University, College of Dentistry, I completed a one year dental residency at New Rochelle Hospital in 1969. A most educational and emotional rewarding year. During the subsequent four years I participated in a public health program as an attending dentist at Hunts Point Multi Service Center. In the mid 1970's and began a private practice in midtown Manhattan. As the private practice grew, teaching at NYU Dental College complemented the practice. I taught Dental Material Science, Operative, Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics for the following eight years. I'm truly an expert in many facets of restorative dentistry. A few of my colleagues began teaching at Mount Sinai Medical Center in the mid 1900's and we developed a very active department of Fixed Prosthodontics on Fridays. I've given numerous continuing education programs on Adhesive Dentistry.Presently, I am Assistant Professor emeritus from Mount Sinai Medical Center, Department of Dentistry.
