It has been such a pleasure to have served the New Haven and Naugatuck Valley areas since 1986. I am fortunate that I genuinely love what I do. After all these years, I still embrace the challenges that are involved in giving my patients the smile that they can feel great about for a lifetime.
Education and Experience
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, I attended the University of Pittsburgh for my dental and orthodontic training. Dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of orthodontic treatment, I attend study groups, continuing education courses, and local dental society meetings. The enables me too keep updated on the most current information and techniques, so that I am able to provide the best care possible for my patients.

My staff and I strive to create a warm, comfortable environment that is full of laughter and fun for our patients and their families. We give great attention to presenting comprehensive, conservative treatment plans and involving the family in the decision-making process. I tend to be conservative in my treatment philosophy and only recommend that which I would for my own family.
Outside the Office
An avid Pittsburgh sports fan, I take the Steelers very seriously. You may have noticed the banners displayed in the windows as you drive down Route 34. I am also an accomplished metal sculptor and have taught at the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven since 1993. My additional interests include biking, racquetball, wine making, and traveling.
