I wanted to be able to perform the highest level of restorative dentistry, and, ultimately, be able to make a dramatic difference in peoples lives. As specialists in restorative, cosmetic and implant dentistry, we are called upon to provide the best restorative and implant surgical care. The creativity and logical problem solving that gets the WOW from the patients is a real high.
A great many patients come to us with serious problems: some are aesthetic, some are functional (breakdown of restorations, teeth, and/or bite), and many are both. Some require implant therapy, which adds a whole other dimension. Personally, I love the challenge of breaking down the problems to the lowest common denominator and then rebuilding the mouth to perfection. Overall, making a difference in peoples lives by restoring them to a point of health with aesthetic results that are superior to what is generally being performed out there is an important driver to me and my team. Our philosophy is do it right, get it right.
A warm, friendly, highly professional environment provided by a top end staff. Our facility is large (3,000 sq feet) with all the treatment rooms having picture windows overlooking a wide-open expanse.
I specialize in prosthodontics with a subspecialty in periodontal prostheses or reconstructing the partially or fully broken-down adult dentition. This specialty includes implant surgery and restoration, cosmetic design and makeover, reconstruction of the broken down dentition, and crowns, veneers, and bridges.
Provide the best possible therapy based upon the pursuit of excellence in every aspect of practice-from the initial diagnosis, alternative treatment plans, and detailed therapy sequence resulting in unmatched final results. Our single-minded focus on getting it right with top fitting, very aesthetic restorations has resulted in crowns that last over 35 years and 3,400 surgically inserted and restored implants with a 97-98% success rate over a 10-20 year period. We have assembled the best team of top professionals to provide this therapy in a very friendly, efficient, and comfortable environment.
I work out several days a week. With three children and 6 grandchildren in the Washington metropolitan area, my wife and I see family members most weekends. On the side, I am also continuing my work in my venture project, the automated implant restoration system, when not doing all of that. I hope to also go back to my golf game in the spring.
The epiphany on wanting to become a prosthodontist came from the first few days of orientation at the University of Pennsylvania dental school, followed by reinforcement in lectures during my first year. Penn is the institution that invented the subspecialty ofperiodontal prosthesis, which became my area of interest. Seeing the clinical results from rehabilitating the broken-down adult dentition from the top players in the field inspired me to specialize in this area of prosthodontics.
I am intenselydedicatedto top performance and performers and providing my patients with the best therapy,loyalto family, friends, patients, and people I work with, and to business/practices with whom I have established a working relationship, andcomprehensivein my approach to any work-to-task projects.
Several of my professors at U of P and BU set the standards for top-end therapy, which I incorporated early on into my practice and became the basis of our corporate culture. At this stage in my career, I am a mentor to others in the field in any one of several areas, rather than being mentored.
Making a dramatic difference in many peoples lives over the years has been very rewarding. It is quite satisfying to have inspired a vast array of top team members to provide service following the pursuit of excellence, ending up with our patients receiving top service and the very best, longest-lasting restorations.
