I’m originally from Philadelphia where my parents raised my brother to study and work hard in school but also to have fun and follow our interests. I attended Penn State University and then went to dental school at the University of Pennsylvania. After dental school I served as a dental officer in the U.S. Navy and Marine Corp. during the Vietnam Conflict. This service led me to California where after 3 years in the Navy Reserves I started my dental practice in San Francisco’s Union Square/Financial District.
I have truly enjoyed all the Bay Area has to offer! I met and married my Swedish wife Birgitta. Together with our 3 children we have been fortunate to travel the world and explore the wine, golf and culture in our own backyard.
The Bay Area is also were I adopted my philosophy of care and my “obsession” with overall health and esthetics. In addition, to maintaining and caring for my patients oral health I feel fortunate to have been able in many cases to transform their smiles and in turn their confidence through cosmetic dentistry.
I love what I do! So much so that after 40 years in practice I still feel enthusiastic about learning new things, caring for my patients and coming to work each day. My goal is to exceed my patients' expectations of care and service. High-Tech is great, as long as service isn't compromised and a personal touch remains. In striving to obtain my goal I have brought together a great team of individuals who share my passion, and I’m continuing to update my office with the most state-of the-art equipment to ensure that my patients receive more options, more comfort and more service. In addition, we as a team are committed to continuing education so that we keep our skills as top-notch as the service that we provide.
