Invisalign Provider in Bethlehem PA

I find it amazing to say I have been practicing orthodontics over 20 years. I guess time does fly when you are doing what you love. Sometimes, people ask me what made me want to be an orthodontist. When I was young, I loved science and people, so I tried to find a career that would combine both. When I was 15 I convinced my parents to take me to the orthodontist. It was truly a life changing experience. I was very self-conscious about my smile and this led me to be less confident in myself. Not only did I experience how much braces can transform a person firsthand, but my orthodontist became my mentor, later my employer, and to this day I consider him my friend. I knew during this treatment that this was something I wanted to do. I really love helping people and when I see someone brimming with life and confidence after giving them the smile they always wanted, well, there’s no better feeling in the world for me.

The Lord has given me the talents and ability to positively impact the lives of others. Every day, I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to care for my patients. I have the opportunity to participate in their lives and share their highs and lows as they grow and transform during our time together. I guess that is what I am most passionate about and why I love what I do. In my heart, I know that being your orthodontist is all about you and taking care of you like you were my own family. Anyone who knows me knows there is nothing I would not do for my family.

I attended LaSalle University and graduated Maxima cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology. At LaSalle, I was involved in the theater group and the premedical/predental honor society serving as its president my senior year. After LaSalle, I went to Temple University Dental School where I received my Doctorate in Dental Medicine, graduating fourth in my class of 147. I was invited to join the oral surgery, periodontal, and prosthetics honor societies while at Temple and was elected to OKU national dental honor society.

I decided to continue my education and proudly serve my country by joining the United States Air Force as a dental officer and completed a General Practice Residency at the Malcolm Grow Medical Center at Andrews AFB in the Washington DC area. Being in the nation’s capital area afforded me many unique educational opportunities including a Pharmacology course at Bethesda, a forensic dentistry course at Walter Reed, and monthly oral pathology courses from the pathologists at the Arms Forces Institute of Pathology. After three great years at Pease AFB in Portsmouth, NH, I entered the orthodontic residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine where I began what has been the most rewarding career I could imagine. Providing my patients with beautiful smiles and sharing their joys and excitement has given me many wonderful moments. Please visit our site for Invisalign treatment in Bethlehem

Signs and symptoms of a flawed bite may include cold sensitivity, facial and jaw soreness, bone loss, broken dental work or tooth wear. I pay close attention to all of these signs in my patients to make sure their bites are healthy. Visit our websites to learn more about all the dental procedures we offer.
