I love being a dentist because the profession lets me make positive changes in people’s lives far beyond their teeth and gums. On face value, I help my patients achieve the most brilliant and healthiest smiles, but I believe the effects on my dental care go well beyond people’s jaw line. I work to improve my patient’s lives by improving their health and quality of life. I believe someone’s smile is the first thing you notice about them. I feel very fortunate to have the ability to greatly improve our patients’ overall health, appearance, self-esteem, and self-confidence through our dentistry.
Education and Continuing Training
I graduated from Hingham (Massachusetts) Junior High and High Schools. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Notre Dame before earning my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.
I have been committed to staying on top of the latest dental techniques, procedures, and technology by taking hundreds of hours of advanced training from across the country and abroad. My goal is to offer our patients the highest quality and best value treatment available. I am proud also to offer our patients the most state of the art, aesthetic treatment options possible. Dentistry has changed exponentially over the last ten years and part of my mission is to be on the leading edge of these advancements.
Being in the Faculty Club at the Spear Center in Scottsdale Arizona, part of my advanced training has included cosmetic and full-mouth reconstruction. I am also excited about the advancement in dental CAD-CAM technology, which allows us to fabricate one visit crowns and veneers with our CEREC® system. Our CBCT 3D X-ray imaging (Galileos®) greatly improves the accuracy of implant placement and planning and provides invaluable information in diagnosing pathologies.
I have been practicing for 30 years and counting in Hingham, MA. If there is one thing I have learned it is that being part of the professional community is one of the most important ways to remain up-to-date. I am involved with numerous professional organizations including:
- American Dental Association
- American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry
- Academy of General Dentistry
- American Dental Implant Association
- Massachusetts Dental Society
- South Shore District Dental Society
- Faculty Club for Spear Institute Scottsdale, AZ
At the Office
You can always count on my dedication to quality. I will take time to go over each recommended treatment and be personally available to answer any questions or concerns you have about it. I like to give each procedure a personal touch and love seeing the development of your bright smile. I value your satisfaction throughout each treatment and work to establish a strong relationship. Over the years, I have been honored to serve many patients continually. One of my favorite parts of being involved in professional dentistry so long has been seeing my patients grow from being young children to capable adults.
Outside the office, I enjoy boating, skiing and scuba diving with my two sons, Luke and William. I also enjoy traveling and photography.
