Orthodontics to me is more than straightening a smile—it’s about improving patients’ lives and building confidence and trust in our community. I have always been passionate about making the lives of those around me better. Creating long lasting beautiful smiles makes me feel that I have fulfilled my passion.
I have been teaching and practicing orthodontics for more than 20 years, and in that time, I have met so many wonderful people, created beautiful smiles, and educated and encouraged patients to have a great and successful future. I know when a young patient feels confident and proud of their smile, they will achieve more in life. What a great satisfaction when we see that result!
I am a Penn Dental Medicine graduate of the Orthodontic department, an Ivy League University. I continually update my education to provide the best and most effective care to my patients. Additionally, I have served as Director and Professor of Orthodontics for more than 20 years at Temple University School of Dentistry, where I help to shape the next generations of orthodontists.
My wife Roya has been a dental hygienist and our practice manager since 1992. She has designed our two beautiful orthodontic offices better than I could have ever done on my own. Our two sons Bradford and Roderick are both in college.
When I’m not in the office, I enjoy traveling, reading books, cooking, listening to music, going to the gym, watching movies, dinning out with Roya, and spending time with family and friends.
