For the past 35 years, I have found it to be extremely rewarding and satisfying, on both a personal and professional level, to aid in the diagnosis and relief of my patients’ pain. It has been my pleasure to have met some extremely interesting people over the years, people from whom I’ve learned a great deal. These relationships have enriched my life in more ways that I could have imagined.

I am extremely passionate about bringing the most current treatment modalities and technologies into my office for the care and treatment of my patients. I have lectured on the uses and advantages of new technologies in endodontics at various dental meetings and study groups both domestically and internationally. We were one of the first practices to introduce digital radiography in 1990 as well as an early adopter of Cone Beam CT for endodontic diagnosis and treatment. I have been active with several manufacturers of new endodontic techniques in beta testing technology and consulting on new designs and techniques.
I am also actively involved in continuing education through my affiliations with several professional organizations, including the:
- American Association of Endodontists
- American Dental Association
- New York State Dental Society
- NY County Dental Society
Additionally, I served as attending endodontist at Bellevue Hospital from 1983 to 1985, an endodontic instructor NYU College of Dentistry from 1985 to 1990, and am currently a clinical instructor of post graduate endodontics at Columbia University.
Outside the Office
I grew up on Long Island and lived in Manhattan for 25 years before moving to Westchester County 16 years ago. My wife, Linda, and I have two children, Matthew and Whitney. I am very proud that they have succeeded in their education and are doing their best to be productive and responsible members of their community and working to improve the lives of others.
In my free time, I can be found enjoying the movies, fine dining, attending the theater, traveling, or on the tennis court.
