Getting to know the local families and treating their children has been a dream come true for me. Having a true family practice was exactly the way I had always envisioned myself during my training and schooling.
I knew orthodontics was the right career choice for me from the very beginning. Growing up in Staten Island, NY, I always enjoyed order and organization in contrast to my laid back personality and down to earth demeanor. These traits all blended together well and have made a great balance for a successful orthodontist. I always want to make my patients comfortable and at home, yet get the job done well. I was then lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to receive my education from the United States Air Force training program, helping me to complete my degree in orthodontics.
I strongly believe in giving back to the community organizations that make this neighborhood such a wonderful place. Every year I happily contribute to sponsor or support many local sports teams, charities, and community fundraisers.
After enjoying traveling the globe gaining knowledge and experience while treating hundreds of U.S. servicemen, women, and their families, I now enjoy being back home permanently in New York. I spend my leisure time with my wife and our two daughters, who were born while we were stationed in Okinawa, Japan. We have become the hub of our family since we returned to the U.S. in 2005. Hosting and entertaining our large family and friends for most holidays and special occasions and making up for lost time are at the top of our list these days.
I can’t wait to meet you and have you become part of our Ramapo Orthodontics family!
