Meet Our Doctor

It's truly an honor to work with so many wonderful people and to help them improve their smiles. I feel lucky each and every day to come to work!

In order to become an orthodontist, I first attained my undergraduate degree at Duke University, then graduated with my DDS from The University of North Carolina. Finally, I got my Masters in Orthodontics at The University of Nebraska.

Continuing Education
In order to provide the highest level of care for my patients, I know I must keep up-to-date on all the latest advances in orthodontics, general dentistry, oral surgery and periodontics. I see a wide variety of cases, and my continuing education allows me to gain the knowledge needed to treat my patients with greater care and efficiency.

As a part of my continuing education, I have worked hard to become Board Certified by the American Board of Orthodontics. I am also an active member of the following professional organizations:

American Association of Orthodontics
Northeastern Society of Orthodontics
Connecticut State Dental Association
Connecticut Study Club for Excellence in Dentistry, a branch of the Seattle Study Club
In the Office
I love to see our patients' personalities develop as their smiles improve through the treatments given here. Our gentle care and personal treatment help people realize that they truly are special, and their new smiles help them feel confident enough to express themselves! I enjoy the enthusiasm and energy of our patients, and after 16 years am still thrilled to come to work each day.

My office is an unforgettable place, largely because of the efforts of our staff. Our team loves making our patients' experience fun and unforgettable. They all really care about our patients and want them to receive fantastic orthodontic care. This shows in their service to our patients, the quality of treatments they help give, and most of all, the laughter heard in our treatment area!

Family Life
I grew up in Glastonbury, and have lived in South Glastonbury for the past 13 years. My wife, Dawn, and I have three children named Reid, Collin and Morgan. We also have two dogs, Crocket and Patches. In my spare time, I enjoy tennis, skiing, watching my kids' sporting activities and spending time with my family.
