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

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.

Personal Life

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.
