I love to see people smile. It is so rewarding to give children and adults the confidence to share a big happy smile. I know this confidence will positively affect their lives, whether in school, at work, or most important, in their relationships. Let’s face it: People want to be around people who smile.

I live in Millersville, MD with my lovely wife Melissa (and our cat Tilly). I am blessed to have Melissa work with me in the office. She is our patient liaison and makes sure that all of our patients get the special attention they need and deserve.

My philosophy is to do what is right for my patients, have open communication, listen, and care. Our team strives to deliver excellence in all we do.

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and your family.

Below is my professional timeline.
