About

Bio

I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Michigan. Following graduation, I relocated to Boston where I graduated magna cum laude and received my Doctorate of Dental Medicine from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. At Tufts, I earned many accolades including honors for high performance on the National Board exams, merit scholarships for exceptional academic performance, and membership to the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon dental honor society. Following 3 years of general practice in the Boston and New York City areas, I returned to school to earn my specialty Certificate in Endodontics from New York University College of Dentistry. While at NYU, I was selected by my peers to serve as Chief Resident. I also participated in dental outreach trips to provide treatment to under-served areas of Mexico and Nicaragua. I currently practice in New York and offer a full range of endodontic treatments including primary root canal treatment, root canal retreatment, surgical endodontics, and treatment of traumatic injuries and endodontic emergencies. My goal is not only to provide excellent endodontic treatment, but also to leave you with the best experience possible. I am a Board Eligible Candidate of the American Board of Endodontics and am in active pursuit of Diplomate status.

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.
