Creating Beautiful Smiles, One Person at a Time
I love being an orthodontist. My days are spent with people choosing 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 suffers and they may be uncomfortable in social situations. Working closely with each patient, we choose the right treatment processes 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. Best of all, that’s a smile they’re going to love for a lifetime!
I’ve been an orthodontist for over 20 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

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.

I grew up in Worcester and recently moved to Holden. I also lived in Grafton for many years. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife, my two daughters, and our poodle, Rex. I love biking and hiking the trails of Massachusetts and sailing at the Cape. In the evenings, I’m often found reading, with a particular love of biographies and current events.
