Welcome to my practice. I look forward to working with you to resolve your dental issues. My first priority is making sure you feel completely comfortable during your visit, so I will listen carefully to your interests, ideas, and concerns before I create a comprehensive treatment plan. Together we can find a solution you’ll love.
The ability to transform my patients’ lives by alleviating pain, restoring function, and giving new confidence is what brings me to work every day.
I’ve also helped many of my patients overcome their fear of dental work, and I look at it as a fulfilling challenge to convert a person who is afraid into someone who enjoys coming to see me for routine care.
I grew up in a family of physicians, so helping people is part of who I am. As an undergraduate, I made the decision to become a dentist during a mission trip to help disadvantaged communities in Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
After completing my undergraduate degree at University of Florida, I completed my dental training at Harvard School of Dental Medicine. I then focused on helping medically compromised patients, and providing advanced restorative dentistry during my post-graduate residency at Nova Southeastern University.
I also studied implant dentistry with Dr. Arun Garg in Miami at the Implant Continuum Seminars, and obtained Fellowship status in implantology through the International Dental Implant Association.
Dentistry is a quickly evolving science, so I am dedicated to the pursuit of continuing education throughout the year to keep up with the latest practices and technology. I’m a member of the American, Florida, and West Coast Dental Associations, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Manatee Dental Society, the International Dental Implant Association, Academy of General Dentistry, and the Frank Spear Study Club.
I love living in Bradenton where I’m close to family and friends. In my free time I enjoy traveling, golfing, fishing, tennis, scuba diving, and I’m an avid football, basketball, and baseball fan.
I look forward to taking great care of you!
