General dentistry

Education:

DDS and AEGD, SUNY Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine; Implantology and Orthdontic continuum, New York University and the United States Dental Institute, respectively.


Why He Was Nominated

He is the consummate generalist, involved in innumerable facets of the profession. “I eat, drink, sleep, talk and dream in dentistry,” he says.

Tool He Can't Live Without

Loupe light. “I can do field dentistry in a remote rural village with very basic tools as long as I have perfect illumination every time.”

Biggest Challenge

Managing his family and personal life, ensuring staff satisfaction, continuing his education and serving as an officer in the Air Force — all while providing top-level dental care.

Favorite Office Music

Jazz, or something acoustic. Around the office, though, he defers to his staff — which usually means soft-pop hits.
