My passion for dentistry and orthodontics began when I was in middle school and it has been amazing to make my dreams a reality. I grew up in a family of dentists and was lucky to see at a young age how rewarding a career in orthodontics can be. I guess you could say dentistry is in my genes; both of my parents, my grandfather, and great grandfather were dentists, so wanting to help people have beautiful, healthy smiles just comes naturally to me.
What I love most about orthodontics is helping people feel better about the way they look. Watching the transformation that occurs in someone who is embarrassed to smile and then after treatment feels confident enough to give the biggest smile in the room is a great feeling. I love what I do and feel blessed to be in this profession.
I believe that there is no age limit to having a healthy, beautiful smile. I am proud to have a practice that is truly dedicated to giving each patient a smile they’ll be eager to show off.
Education and Continuing Education
I graduated from Barnard University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology. I went on to receive my Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Columbia University School of Medicine and I completed my Orthodontic Residency at the University of Pennsylvania.
My team and I are dedicated to providing the highest standard of orthodontic care to our patients by utilizing the latest technology and lifelong learning with continuing education. In an effort to stay on the cutting-edge of orthodontic technology, I continually update my education through courses and seminars on the very best treatments and products being developed. I am also a member of several professional organizations which helps me to stay involved with the greater orthodontic and dental communities.
- American Association of Orthodontists
- American Dental Association
- Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontists
- New Jersey Association of Orthodontists
