The orthodontic field is constantly changing. Advancements in techniques, emerging technologies, and new materials mean more options, better diagnostics and treatment planning, and more efficient, comfortable care.
Each year I take a wide range of continuing education in order to stay current on these developments. While I focus on orthodontics, I also seek to understand the advances in other oral healthcare specialties. By seeing the big picture, I’m able to better diagnose and treatment plan; in turn, my patients receive stronger care and develop a stable, healthy, and confident smile!
In addition to attending orthodontic and dental meetings, lectures, and seminars, I’m an active member of the Spear Study Club and a member of and past president of the Lehigh Valley Dental Study Club.
I also serve as attending faculty for St. Luke’s University Health Network Dental Residency.
A Scranton native, I’ve lived in Lower Nazareth with my family since 2004. My wife Alisa and I were high school sweethearts; we married while in dental school and now have two children.
Brandon, our son, is studying Biology at the University of Scranton; Amelia, our daughter, is in high school and is an avid field hockey and lacrosse player. Our family is rounded out by our dog, Puck, who’s the cutest Havanese in the world!
Outside the office, I enjoy time with my family, especially our backyard BBQs. I also love to play golf; you’d think that, after all the years I’ve spent on the links, I’d be better at it!
By the way, I am a regular blood donor at the Miller Keystone Blood Center and am fast approaching the 30-gallon donation mark. I started donating blood when I was in college, all because Domino’s Pizza was giving away free pizza to all donors (funny, but true!).
In 2017, my son Brandon was diagnosed with leukemia and I realized just how important blood donations are: he required about 20 units of blood during chemotherapy. I continue to donate blood to help save someone’s life – like other donors saved Brandon’s.
