I strive to treat each person as I would a family member: with honesty, respect, and the best evidence-based treatments. Many patients are nervous about oral surgery, and I pride myself in providing as gentle and pain-free an experience as possible.


I am originally from Allentown, Pennsylvania, but have lived in many cities around the US. I have been practicing dentistry since 2013, and I met my wonderful wife Karly in Memphis. We have a daughter named Daphne, two cats named Gus and Rosie, and a dog named Mabel.
