I was born and raised in Chicago and have lived in and around the city most of my life. After completing my undergraduate studies at Santa Clara University in California, I returned to Chicago and graduated Northwestern University Dental School in 1981. I am licensed in both Illinois and California. In my spare time I enjoy cycling, golf, snow skiing, and yoga. I am a member of the American Dental Association, Illinois State Dental Society, Chicago Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry. I believe that informing and educating my patients is the foundation of developing a trusting and long-term relationship that will lead to a lifetime of dental health. Through the interaction, involvement, and cooperation of my patient I believe an empowering and caring relationship develops that leads to successful decision making. With my use of current technology and methods, I strive to make a visit to the dentist less apprehensive and painless. With over 750 hours of continuing education, I am able to use state-of-the-art materials to restore teeth to their natural function and appearance. I look forward to helping my patients whether it’s a basic filling, complex cosmetics, or full mouth rehabilitation. I have been performing dental services like bonding, porcelain veneers, and implant restorations since the 1980’s. The 34 years of experience I bring to my patients has enabled me to perform both complex and basic dental procedures efficiently and with beautiful, long-lasting results.
