As a former faculty member at the New York University College of Dentistry for over 20 years, I did more than just teach hundreds of dentists. I also shared ideas with some of the most talented minds in my profession. The base of knowledge I gained during this tenure has given me the power of discovery, the ability to assess problems and adapt to changes in dental care.

During these years I also had access to many dental advances before they became widely available. By seeing how these materials and techniques worked firsthand, I was able to implement the most proven ones within my New York & Tarrytown dental practices.

Personal attention makes the difference and I believe that in order to provide quality dentistry a patient can't be rushed. That's why I will spend the time necessary with you to fully understand what your dental needs are. This includes asking what your expectations are, answering all of your questions and explaining your treatment options in great detail. It's the same kind of friendly, compassionate dental care that I would want for myself. 

As a child I spent countless hours creating elaborate model railroads, airplanes and other toys. I was so patient and meticulous with my craft that my parents told me I would make a great dentist when I grew up. Today, my attention to detail has helped me improve the smiles of thousands of patients, and it can do the same for yours!
