After over 20 years working as a specialist in orthodontics, I think the best part of being a Wellington & Boynton Beach, FL orthodontist is the look of joy on my patients’ faces when they see themselves in a mirror after their orthodontic treatment is complete. I love seeing people’s lives change with their new, beautiful smiles.
My goal is to make each patient feel at home from the moment they walk through the door. We have very relaxed orthodontic offices in Wellington & Boynton Beach. We are open. We joke around. We have fun.
I was in the 7 year undergrad-dental school program at NYU (I graduated with Honors from the NYU College of Dentistry in 1989).
In my first year of dental school I loved the growth and development course given by the chairman of the Orthodontic Department. I asked if he had any research positions available, and I soon began doing research on Cleft Lip/Palate babies and other severe craniofacial deformities.
I worked at the NYU Medical Center with these patients, over the summers and during the academic year throughout the rest of dental school. This research, along with my work aiding in the orthodontic treatment of craniofacial patients, steered me into orthodontics (I got my specialty training with Honors in Orthodontics from NYU in 1991).
After that, I did advanced training in New York City hospitals as a Fellow in Craniofacial Deformities and Orthognathic Surgery.
I was an Associate Clinical Professor at NYU for a while, and had practices in New York and Connecticut.
In 1996 my family and I moved to South Florida, where I’ve been practicing ever since.
