To me, being an orthodontist means bettering my patients’ lives, every day.
Each patient seeks treatment for a different reason and handles it in a different way. My goal is to ensure every person is informed, engaged, and actively involved in their treatment. By working together, we are able to achieve not only an incredible smile, but my patient also enjoys their orthodontic experience!
I appreciate the diversity of my days and the many people I spend time with. While they are here because they share a desire to improve their smile, each brings a unique set of experiences and expectations to the office. It is a joy to get to know my patients, personally, and to share the excitement of the orthodontic journey with them.
The day treatment is finished, and the new smile is revealed, we celebrate all we have accomplished, together!

Since completing the rigorous three-year orthodontics residency, I have sought out continuing education in order to constantly expand my skills and knowledge.
In addition to completing the Invisalign® master’s course, I have taken courses in presenting treatment plans, means of treating surgical cases, and different early treatment techniques. I also take courses on new and emerging technologies and techniques, learning different approaches to treat similar cases. Additionally, I participate in several multi-disciplinary study clubs in order to perfect interspecialty treatments to provide the best outcome for patients.

Beyond the Practice
I grew up in Long Island and have lived in Manhattan for the last 15 years. My life is shared with my Pug, who enjoys taking me for walks around the city. I make time to go to the gym, spend hours with friends, and get to the beach as often as possible.
I am passionate about travel, learning and experiencing new things, and meeting new people. I am just as passionate about quality time with friends and family, especially my mother and two brothers, and feel fortunate to practice orthodontics alongside my father.
