I was born and raised in Jacksonville as the fourth of five children and attended Bishop Kenny High School. I was fortunate to see the benefits that orthodontic treatment provided for others by working in my father’s orthodontic practice, which was established in Jacksonville in 1964. I also learned what attention to detail looked like when it came to straight and healthy teeth. The desire to help others the way my father did for so many years set me on the path to orthodontics. To confirm my commitment to continue quality orthodontic care to my patients, I have pursued the highest level of certification in orthodontics by becoming board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. Only 1 in 3 practicing orthodontist have met this level of achievement.
I strive to bring the most recent techniques and technologies to the practice to provide the highest quality of service and results for my patients. I participate in various study clubs and I am an active member in local and national organization such as The American Board of Orthodontics, American Association of Orthodontics and the Jacksonville Dental Society to name a few.
I have been blessed with a beautiful wife, Marie Louise, and four loving children, Annelise, Louis, Adriana and Annemarie. All my time away from work is happily spent with my family and participating in my children’s activities. I enjoy playing the violin with my three oldest children and taking family trips. I am also continuously working toward strengthening my Catholic faith.
