“Welcome to our office!” That has always been the warm feeling that I have nurtured within our team for the 20+ years that I have been practicing and living in the McLean community. Treating your family like ours has always been my goal.
Like many of you, my life began elsewhere. I grew up in suburban New York and attended college at Tufts University outside of Boston. It was there while volunteering at the New England Medical Center, that I cultivated my interest in orthodontics. That lead me to earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine at the University of Florida, and my Certificate in Orthodontics and Master of Science degree from the University of Maryland.
As my good fortune would have it, it was at the University of Maryland that I met my wife, “Dr. Cris”(Ternisky), a true McLeanite. We have enjoyed raising our two children in McLean, watching them attend some of the same schools that my wife attended as a child, and being a part of this great community. Together we enjoy outdoor activities, especially skiing in the winter. Individually, I am a car nut and avid motorcyclist!
