My philosophy is to treat every patient as if he or she were a member of my own family. I always strive to be a man of integrity; I love people and the work I do for them, whether they are seven or 87 years of age! My experience and orthodontic knowledge combine with the cutting edge technology we use to create spectacular smiles for our patients!
Education and Continuing Education
In order to become an orthodontist, I first graduated from dental school Magna Cum Laude from Virginia Commonwealth University. I then obtained my orthodontic specialty training from Indiana University. Throughout my training, I received numerous awards and honors, including admission to the National Dental Honorary Society.
I presently serve part-time on the Orthodontic faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, and the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. My academic credentials include the publication of numerous scientific and clinical articles, peer reviews, and several speaking engagements locally, nationally, and internationally. As a part of my continuing education, I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, The American Dental Association, and the Southern Association of Orthodontists.
In the Practice
I am proud to be Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. I have extensive experience in adolescent and adult orthodontics, Invisalign, and complex cases requiring combined orthodontic or orthognathic (jaw) surgery. I, along with my team, take great pride in creating a positive experience for patients and their families. I am proud to have served the people of our community for the past 15 years, and hope you’ll join our family of patients soon!
I live in Reston, Virginia, with my beautiful wife, Carol, and our two sweet children, Nicholas and Dia. Having my own kids gives me great perspective with kids like yours! In my free moments, I enjoy travel with my family, playing golf, trying multicultural cuisines, and social gatherings.
