Creating Beautiful Smiles, One Person at a Time

I love being an orthodontist. My days are spent with people who have chosen to make a positive, lasting change in their lives. Each person starts treatment with a smile he or she is not happy with. Their self-esteem may suffer and they may be uncomfortable in social situations. Working closely with each patient, we choose an appropriate treatment process for their clinical and personal needs.

As a person moves through treatment, they see their teeth begin to align and their new smile emerge. They become increasingly comfortable with their appearance and their self-esteem grows. By the end of treatment, they’re a new person, filled with confidence as a result of their healthy, beautiful smile.

I’ve been an orthodontist for more than 30 years. I’m honored to be caring now for the children of some of my first patients. As a family-friendly and patient-centered office, my team and I strive to build lasting connections with our patients and their families. It’s a joy to serve our community in this way; I cannot imagine a more fulfilling profession!

Education and Commitment to Continuing Education

  • Doherty Memorial High School in Worcester
  • Undergraduate – Assumption College
  • Doctorate of Dental Medicine – Tufts University School of Dental Medicine
  • Post-doctoral studies in orthodontics – New York University

Before starting my post-doc studies, I served our country in the United States Public Health Service, during which I was assigned to the Navy.

I want each of my patients to attain their best smile and have an unequaled treatment experience. I actively pursue continuing education courses through meetings, seminars, and lectures. Orthodontics is a constantly evolving specialty, and incorporating new techniques and technology means even better care. Continuing education ensures my patients’ access to the best options and outcomes.
