A Passion for Dentistry
I love helping my patients maintain their teeth, healthy mouths, and smiles. It’s also a pleasure to help restore worn and neglected mouths to good health, and to improve your smile cosmetically to increase confidence.
As a dentist, I am able to help my patients every day. By focusing on their specific situation, and combining the latest technology and treatments with my years of experience, I’m able to assist each person to attain optimal oral health.
Along with my team, I emphasize patient education, preventive care, and minimally invasive treatments. These elements, working together, result in patients who are engaged and enthusiastic about caring for their dental health, and who have healthy smiles.
It’s a pleasure to serve my patients. The friendships that have developed over the years are important to me, and I am honored to be caring for multiple generations of the same family.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate degree – Westminster College
- Doctorate of Dental Surgery – State University of New York at Buffalo
Each year I participate in many hours of continuing education courses, locally, regionally, and nationally, through the Academy of General Dentistry. This ensures I am informed of the newest technological options, treatments, and dental materials. My patients are guaranteed access to the best care and treatment experience available.
One of my continuing education interests is CEREC® single-visit crowns. CEREC crowns and onlays are beautiful tooth restorations that can be done in one day, without old-style, uncomfortable impressions.
I grew up in Kittanning, PA and now live on the north side of Pittsburgh with my wife Linda. I have two adult children: Kelsey is my daughter, and Colin is my son. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love physical exercise and being outdoors, especially when I’m hiking, bike riding, or skiing. I’m also passionate about travel and seeing the world.
