Every day I am reminded of how much people of all ages and walks of life value a healthy, attractive smile. Life is all about relationships, and all good relationships require communication. A great smile helps people communicate with confidence, positively effecting their lives in so many ways. Attention to detail is important to me in all aspects of my life, and that is a big part of creating a quality orthodontic result, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile.
Everyone has something interesting going on in their lives, and I love to hear about it. My youngest patients are great because they are so enthusiastic about anything new. Having braces, coming to the office, straightening their teeth, all of that is such fun to them. Teenagers are great because they are so interesting. There are so many fun and different activities that they are passionate about. They are also at an age when their appearance is so important and having a role in improving something as important as one's smile is very rewarding. Adult patients have a special appreciation for the service I can provide. Improving the health and appearance of their teeth is often something that they have wanted to do for years and can have a positive impact on their lives in many ways.
I attended Pennsylvania State University, earning my Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry, and continued on to the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill where I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. My Certificate in Orthodontics and my Master of Science degree in Oral Biology were also completed at UNC School of Dentistry at Chapel Hill.
Continuing education is an important part of any professional career. By using not only the most recent techniques and technology, but the most effective, I can ensure that patients are provided the best results possible in the most comfortable and efficient manner. Visit me on Google+
Outside the Office
I am a native of Franklin, PA, and have lived in Greensboro, NC, since 1995. I have three sons, William, John, and Michael, and I love to spend time with them, encouraging them to keep their lives simple and to enjoy and appreciate one another. When I have free time, you can find me on the golf course, playing tennis, or working out.
I support numerous community activities, mostly related to my kids. School, athletic, and community activities in which my boys participate are obviously important to me. In addition to those, my patients are involved with a diverse and interesting range of activities which I find rewarding to support.
