It is with pride that I relate the story of my dental experience.
I am a graduate of the Orthodontic Specialty Program at the Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery. Among my academic honors are memberships in Omicron Kappa Upsilon and the International College of Dentists’ Award for Outstanding Achievement. As a special honor (for a selected few) I was recruited for an Associate Clinical Professor position in the Post Doctoral Program at Columbia University.
I then practiced orthodontics in Manhattan and Brooklyn and taught at Columbia University for the next five years. I have fond memories of my life there, experiencing the many cultural benefits of New York City and I enjoyed being connected to a such a dynamic community of academics and professionals. Also, as a way to "give back" for the opportunities I was given, I volunteered much of my time to the dental school and several of its organizations. Examples: as Instructor, as Editor, as Vice President, and as Program Director for the Columbia Alumni Orthodontic Society.
I further developed my clinical expertise in early treatment as an associate in a pediatric/orthodontic practice in Natick, Massachusetts. Since returning to the Boston area, I have been a loyal member of the American Association of Orthodontists through the local branch, the North Shore District Dental Society. In this organization, I served as an executive board member and represented the North Shore District at the state level. In addition, I am a member of multiple Study Clubs and I pursue continuing education opportunities on a regular basis.
My practice has grown substantially; we have orthodontic offices in Beverly and West Peabody. I am blessed with a skilled and wonderful long-term staff and it is a pleasure to work with such respected and well-known dentists and specialists of the North Shore Community.
On a personal note, my family and I enjoy many of the myriad cultural and sporting offerings of Boston and the North Shore Area. We also like to hike, mountain bike, and ski.
My staff and I are here to provide exceptional orthodontic care and dental health. The core of my philosophy is based on the following triad: provide an accurate diagnosis, offer the highest level of service, and ensure the most efficient treatment at a reasonable cost. This triad, of course, is supported by a key ingredient—experience!
