I love working with patients to improve the look and function of their smile. With every case, I enjoy creating a treatment plan that takes care of individual needs. Orthodontics allows me to use art and science to better the lives of my friends and neighbors. Patients get so interested in their treatment and they want to learn. I believe in honesty and openness with our patients so I sit down with them to discuss all treatment options. I am grateful that they put their trust in us.
I have spent my whole life living in Northern Virginia and feel this is the greatest community on Earth. I attended the University of Virginia for my Bachelor’s degree, and attained my Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the Medical College of Virginia. I received specialty training in orthodontics and a Master of Science in Oral Biology at the Medical College of Georgia.
I am very active in the dental profession, and am currently (2021-2022) the President of the Virginia Dental Association.
In my free time I enjoy playing tennis and biking. I also have fun playing, coaching, and officiating basketball in the local McLean leagues. When the weather is nice, I try my best at mastering my golf game. When I need a real challenge, I love to solve crossword puzzles and other brain teasers.
