I have been practicing since 2000, and I am proud to provide high-quality orthodontic care to my community. It is so rewarding to see a patient who was nervous about their smile leave our office with a huge grin. I am privileged to watch their health and confidence transform during their time with us.
I was born and raised in Canada and graduated from the University of Toronto with my Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in Nutritional Science and Microbiology. My Doctorate of Dental Medicine was earned at Boston University Goldman School of Dentistry and my Certificate in Orthodontics was completed at Howard University, Washington DC.
As well as treating patients, I enjoy maintaining a leadership role in organized dentistry by staying active in the Northern Virginia Dental Society and the Virginia Dental Association. Currently, I serve as President for the NVDS and as a Component Delegate to the VDA. In addition, I enjoy teaching orthodontics to residents part-time as an Assistant Professor at Howard University School of Dentistry.
My wife and I have two energetic young daughters as well as two tabby cats. Since growing up in the Great White North, the game of hockey is in my blood. Just give me a stick! When I can, I play in an ice league at the Ballston Common rink, street and roller hockey leagues at the Seminary rink in Alexandria. I also love the outdoors and enjoy spending time with my family at the local playgrounds.
