I feel extremely blessed and fortunate to be in a field that is able to provide a significant impact in people’s lives. Open communication is the foundation of having successful orthodontic treatment and I will thoroughly explain any questions or concerns you may have before, during, and after treatment. Although orthodontics is usually completed at adolescence, everyone is entitled to a great smile, regardless of their age, and I will work to deliver it with nothing but the best quality care.

Having taught dental and pre-dental students, I understand that the dental and orthodontic fields are rapidly changing with new technologies. I’m a strong believer in delivering the most advanced products and techniques to patients, and regularly attend continuation courses and meetings. Research is also a key foundation in understanding clinical care. My research on retainers was presented at the AAO annual meeting as well as being published in The Angle Orthodontist journal.

Outside the Office

Originally from New York, I am excited to move back to my home state with my wife Eunhae, who works as a general dentist. We are blessed with one daughter, Minah and twin boys, Ethan and Elliot. When I am not chasing around the kids, I enjoy staying active by playing golf, snowboarding, and traveling. My family and I are extremely excited to be joining the practice and are excited to become part of the community.
