I will ensure that you receive the best care in as low-stress an environment as possible. No one loves to come to the surgeon, but by the end of the appointment, you might just hate it a little less!


My background is in the hospital system, where I spent years training future surgeons on how to perform complex oral and maxillofacial surgery. You can expect that same focus and expertise in my care, which blends current techniques with compassion to provide the best possible care.

My wife and I love traveling. While tropical places are always fantastic, the most beautiful place I have been is Switzerland, which is absolutely worth the trip.
