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!

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 two dogs and two cats.
When not working, my priority is quality time with loved ones, including my parents, as well as Dana’s parents. And if I the weather cooperates, I figure out a way to get to the golf course too!
