Where are you from and where did you attend college, dental school, and residency if any?

I was born and raised in Boston, MA. I attended college at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. I went to the University of Connecticut for both dental school and my residency program in periodontology. Upon completion of my training in 2005, I started my practice here in Houston.

What is your favorite part about your practice?

My favorite part of my practice is that it offers me a platform from which I can help not only our patients, but our employees and community as well.

What would you say is the mission statement of how you practice dentistry?

The mission statement of our practice is to service our patients and community through our expertise in dentistry.

How do you balance work and personal life?

Balancing work and personal life are a challenge. I love clinical practice, learning new skills, and I am a bit of a workaholic. In addition, my wife and I work together and share a passion for servicing our patients and staff. Therefore, it is difficult at times for us to not think or talk about work. However, we have found that we are more productive and better able to serve others after we "get our minds off of work". We dance several nights a week ,and I like to run with our dog. In addition, we try to spend as much time with our children as they will allow! This reminds us of what we miss when we are working and adds greater depth to our lives than we could achieve from work alone.

What advice would you have to current dental students?

My advice to current dental students is to embrace the mistakes you make while in training. You will learn more from these early mistakes than you will from early successes.
