Over forty years of practicing the healing art of dentistry has given me the opportunity to bring a smile and improved health to many in my community. I feel a sense of satisfaction of having the opportunity to provide oral health to my patients. The appreciation expressed by my patients is a wonderful thing — second only to seeing their smiles.
Education and Continuing Education
Originally from Long Island, I attended Tufts University for my Bachelor of Science and graduated in 1967. I continued on to Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and earned my Doctorate of Dental Medicine, cum laude, in 1971. I completed my general practice residency at Yale-New Haven Hospital in 1972.
Continuing education is essential to follow rapidly changing developments in the field of general dentistry. I take multiple yearly continuing education courses sponsored by various organizations. I’ve also taught dental residents at Yale-New Haven Hospital on a volunteer basis for more than 40 years. It brings satisfaction to be able to further the education of the future members of our honored profession.

Outside the Office
I have lived in Orange since 1979 with my wife, a former elementary school teacher. We have two sons who have provided us with five grandchildren who are the joy of our lives. I thoroughly enjoy my grandchildren and watching them go through the various phases of growing up. My various hobbies include extensive travel to learn about different cultures and societies, playing golf, horseback riding, puttering around the house, and maintaining the garden.
