Hello and Welcome to my practice! Originally born and raised in downtown Toronto, I attended the University of Toronto where I obtained a Honors Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and Political Science.

 

I then moved to historic Philadelphia to attend the 2nd oldest dental school in the Americas, Temple University where I obtained a combined Doctorate in Dental Medicine (DMD) and Masters of Public Heath Degree (MPH). I felt that obtaining a MPH in addition to my DMD was important because I understand that teeth are connected to people who are part of families that make up communities. This allowed me to approach dentistry from not only a clinical perspective, but also from a community one emphasizing prevention on a larger scale.

 

My passion for children and being a true kid at heart led me to further education and training in pediatrics at the prestigious University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in beautiful Southern California. It was there that I became an expert in the growth and development and behavior management of children learning from the world's top experts in the field.

 

After receiving my certification as a specialist in Pediatric Dentistry, and wanting to be close to Toronto, I moved back to the East Coast where I practiced in a private practice and community clinic in upstate New York. However, it was not close enough and being a true Toronto boy and diehard Maple Leaf fan, I decided to return home. I noticed that not only was Burlington a beautiful place to settle down and raise a family but it had an unmet need in pediatric dental health.

 

As Burlington's only board certified pediatric dental specialist, I strive to be the leading voice for children's dental health within our community and I hope you choose me to be part of your medical family.
