I am as enthusiastic about practicing orthodontics as I was when I first came to practice in the valley over 40 years ago. During this time I have had the privilege and pleasure of providing my wonderful patients with the benefits of a healthy bite and beautiful smile, using the quickest and most comfortable techniques.
After graduating from the University of Rochester with B.A., I received the degree of Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of Pennsylvania. During this time I received the Anderson Award for excellence in public health dentistry and spent two summers on a National Institutes of Health fellowship studying the correlation of a variety of growth factors with dental and skeletal development. I then proceeded to the Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, where I completed a one-year general dental practice internship followed by a three-year residency leading to a certificate in orthodontics.
I have continued to attend post-graduate education courses several times annually throughout my career in order to stay attuned to the latest research and techniques from the finest orthodontic minds around the world.
I am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the North East Society of Orthodontists, the Connecticut Orthodontic Society, the Central Connecticut Orthodontic Study Group, the American Dental Association, the Connecticut State Dental Association, the Naugatuck Valley Dental Society and the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity. I am a past president of the Naugatuck Valley Dental Society, past chairman of Children’s Dental Health Week for the Connecticut State Dental Association and a former consultant in orthodontics at Griffin Hospital and the West Haven VA hospital. I have spoken to many school groups on the benefits of proper dental care and orthodontics.
I am married to my wife, Doris. We have three grown daughters and six grandchildren. I enjoy travelling, reading, photography, art, music and film.
