I truly enjoy seeing people, talking to them, and learning from them. As a dentist I’m able to help people improve their oral and overall wellness. I can’t imagine anything more fulfilling! I see it as a victory when the work I’ve done for a patient lasts five, ten, now over 15 years.
I love being challenged intellectually and professionally. Dentistry is a unique field where, to practice at the top, one has to master sciences, medicine, physics, behavioral science, technology, and so much more in order to best serve one’s patients. Every day I am challenged to provide the best care, experience, and results for the people under my care. This keeps me energized and excited.
I am thrilled to move a person from dental agony to pain-free, to take a person who is self-conscious about their teeth and help them smile with confidence without reservation, and to help a person who’s unable to chew to having a restored mouth and enjoying food again. Dentistry allows me to change lives, one tooth, one mouth, one smile, and one person at a time.
While completing my doctorate at the prestiged Ivy League institution - University of Pennsylvania, I received the Dean’s Scholarship four years in a row. I was also the honored recipient of the Louis I. Grossman Award in Endodontics and the Academy of General Dentistry Award.
After finishing my doctorate, I completed my residency at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a Harvard Medical School affilate, treating patients with complex dental and medical conditions. Immediately after the residency, I started serving the Milford community working together with Dr. Goodman to provide the best care possible to our patients. At the same time, I worked part-time as a Clinical Instructor with Massachusetts General Hospital through the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, where I served from 2004-2010.
I believe knowledge is power and am passionate about furthering my education in order to better serve my patients. Multiple post-graduate courses provide me with a deeper understanding of dentistry, medicine, and humanity. Together, they allow me to provide the best experience and results. My patients deserve nothing less.

Beyond the Practice
When not caring for patients or studying the latest research discussion in a dental journal, I’m spending time with my family. I love the outdoors and am a serious photographer. You’ll see my photos throughout the office!
