Changing Lives through Smiles

I love being an orthodontist!

Every day I help people in our community make a lasting, positive change in their lives by transforming their smiles into one that they love. It's rewarding to watch a person grow during their time in treatment. As their smile changes, their self-esteem blossoms, and they gain confidence with a smile that they love to share!

Many of my family members are dentists, so I grew up appreciating how lives were improved due to dentistry. After practicing for more than 20 years, I know that I followed the right path. Orthodontics is my passion! My days are spent surrounded by people who are changing their smiles; I cannot imagine anything better than that!

I am committed to providing each patient with the right orthodontic treatment for their clinical and personal needs.

A Little About Me...

I grew up in Oneida. After pursuing my education I returned here to raise my family, and practice orthodontics. My wife Dana and I have three amazing children: Ian, Phinn, and Kate. Our family also includes one dog and two cats.

When not working, my priority is quality time with loved ones. And if I the weather cooperates, I figure out a way to get to the golf course too!
