The most gratifying thing about my job is seeing how a beautiful smile can have such a profound impact on a person’s life. Our patients enable me to do what I love create smiles and I am truly thankful for that. It is extremely rewarding to create a beautiful smile and a healthy bite. It provides a great challenge, similar to solving a puzzle. You figure out how to put all the pieces together to produce an end result that our patients will truly appreciate.

Outside the Office

I have been a proud resident of Niskayuna all of my life. My wonderful family includes my wife Sue and our children: Adam, Jeffrey, and Kristen. I cherish the time I spend with them, as well as my friends. When I have enough time, I enjoy playing a round of golf. A natural problem-solver, I’m also addicted to Sudoku puzzles!
