Born in Lewiston, New York, I grew-up in Niagara Falls and graduated in 1984 from Niagara Falls High School, where I was co-captain of the swim team. Later, I swam for Syracuse University. I’ve played bass guitar in a band along the way, and like tinkering with computers, radios, scanners, and other gadgets. I’m a proud owner of a Meade LX200 10″ SCT telescope, build mid-power rockets, and fly RC aircraft when weather permits. I have a beautiful wife and two fantastic children who gracefully tolerate my interests.

General Practice Dental Residency completed:

My advanced training was based at The Buffalo General Hospital Dental Department, now part of the Kaleida Health Care System. There I sharpened my skills in the practice of general dentistry, including rounds in the Emergency Oral Surgery clinic, and Emergency Room on-call. Additionally, my residency included work at the Deaconess Skilled Nursing Facility dental clinic, located in Buffalo, NY. All phases of general dentistry were provided, as well as treatment of geriatric and mentally-disabled patients.
I’ve also served the Tuscarora Native-American community as their dentist in the bustling Tuscarora Reservation Dental Clinic. This facility is located in the Tuscarora School complex, 2015 Mount Hope Road, Lewiston, NY. I have treated thousands of adults and children of all ages at this clinic, and continue to do so on a part-time basis.
I’m now associated with Stellar Dental Care to assist you in maintaining proper oral health and prevention of tooth decay. We look forward to serving you!
