I strive to have an office where patients receive excellent orthodontic treatment, are well cared for, and enjoy visiting. My goal is to lead an office team who works together for the benefit of the patient. I aspire to continually learn and share knowledge with my patients and colleagues. I love what I do because I get to work with each individual patient to create beautiful smiles and enhance their self-confidence.

I regularly attend the AAO annual session and always learn some new practice information, hear about cutting-edge research, and see the latest advances in technology in our field. I also love getting together with colleagues and discussing new treatment modalities. I participate in local Invisalign®, TAD, and dental implant study clubs and am a member of the American Association of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association.
In the Office
Our team is absolutely the best. Everyone takes time to explain each procedure so each patient is informed and comfortable. Our team is incredibly committed to working as a partner with every patient to maximize his or her health. We help discover the solutions that work for patients in creating and maintaining a beautiful, straight smile.
I am a native of the Washington, DC suburbs and am happy to return to this area to practice. I am married with a lovely son and daughter. When I’m not spending time with my family, I enjoy pottery, knitting, reading, and swimming.
