I have been given the gift and honor to take care of people, and I do not take that responsibility lightly. Every patient that sits down with me is treated no differently than if they were my own family member.


I started practicing dentistry in 2008. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring new places, trying new foods, and spending as much time as possible with my amazing wife Samantha; our two children, Yoni and Chloe; oh, and our fur child Harley.

Professional Associations

American Board of Periodontology, American Academy of Periodontology, Academy of Osseointegration


My favorite authors are Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I am a sucker for all the Marvel movies. No matter how much everyone will dislike me for it, I am a huge Philadelphia sports fans (Eagles, Phillies, and Sixers).
