A Passion for Dentistry
I love making someone feel better about themselves, restoring their self-esteem and self-confidence. Smiling is wonderfully infectious and makes everyone happy: every day, I help people smile!
As a dentist, I’m able to move a person out of pain, restore their ability to chew properly and comfortably, and improve their smile. All of these make a significant, sometimes even life-changing, difference in an individual’s life.
I strive to establish trusting, honest relationships with each person in my care. I want them to know I’ll always be direct in my communication, and they appreciate that. At the same time, I’m compassionate, and love the friendships that have developed in the 10 years I’ve been practicing. I’ve met some incredible people, and become a part of their life, as they’ve become part of mine.

- General Practice Residency, St. Joseph’s Medical Center
I’m a committed life-long learner, which is especially important in the oral healthcare field. Every day new technologies are developed, along with treatments and dental materials. Understanding these changes, and how I can use them to provide even better care to my patients, is essential. By taking many continuing education courses, I stay current, ensuring the best treatments and outcomes for my patients.
My wife Katie and I grew up in Berks County and are now raising our four children here. When I’m not caring for my patients, I’m usually with my family, enjoying everything from tea parties to T-ball. I also enjoy sports, from playing with my church softball team to watching them live or on TV.
