There is an old saying in baseball, that no matter how many games you have seen, if you continue watching you will continue to see something you have never seen before. That is the way I approach dentistry. Though I have been practicing for 20 years, each and every day brings something new and intriguing that allows me to use all my experience and knowledge to help our patients achieve their health and aesthetic goals.
I enjoy helping our patients feel better about their health, solving their dental problems, and growing a friendly relationship with them for a lifetime. I always try to put our patients first and understand their unique needs and desires. The long-term relationships I have built with our family of patients have provided me with great joy.
Education And Continued Education
A native of New York, I received my doctoral degree from the Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine before completing a General Practice Residency at the Northport Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
I pride myself on my commitment to excellence through continuing education in the dental field and have accumulated more than 1,000 hours of continuing education during the last four years in order to stay current with the rapid advances in dental techniques and technology.
In addition to investing in the best for our patients, I enjoy learning and try to master the many disciplines encompassing general dentistry. I have also expanded my interest and skills in implant dentistry and orthodontics, knowing that this broad knowledge will enable me to help our patients make the best choices for their dental care needs.

Outside The Office
When I am not practicing my passion for dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my spouse, Melissa, and my children, Luke, Lennon, and Stella. I like to stay active by playing tennis and enjoy playing my guitar when I get the chance. I also enjoy giving back to my community by staying involved with the Riverhead Chamber of Commerce.
