As a dentist, my first priority is your oral health. I want to ensure that my patients not only have the most beautiful smiles, but also the healthiest. Notwithstanding, quality dentistry is also about caring about patients and developing strong professional relationships. Every morning, I come to practice looking forward to treating and helping fellow members of my community — engaging in conversation and listening to stories. During my 40 plus years in practice, I’ve had the pleasure to meet and care for some incredible people — many of whom have become lifelong friends.” For me, this personal interaction is at the very core of my passion for the profession.
Education and Continuing Education
- Undergraduate – University of Michigan LSA School
- Doctor of Dental Surgery – University of Michigan Dental School
I know that excellence in dentistry can only be achieved through a lifetime of learning. As such, I am committed to seeking out and participating in continuing education through prestigious schools and respected mentors. Each year, I attend a number of oral healthcare meetings and conventions, at the local and national level.
By staying on the leading edge of developments in dental technology, treatment methodologies, and practice philosophies, I can ensure that my patients are not only receiving the highest level of dental care available, but also the most current. That is my commitment.
Away from the Practice
I was born and raised in Detroit, and along with my wife, Jill, have raised two incredible sons. Andrew, is a successful director in Hollywood, having blazed trails not only in commercials and music videos but also in short films and long-form narrative work. Matt is a partner and dentist in our growing family practice. It is so much fun working together with him. When I’m not caring for my patients, I enjoy recreational activities, like swimming and playing tennis. These are second only to taking walks with my wife, Jill. Travel is another passion, whether domestic or abroad. I also have a firm belief that giving back to the community is the responsibility of every professional. Putting that belief into practice, I’ve been involved with the Tri-Couny Dental Health Council for more than 40 years. And although you wouldn’t know it from my youthful veneer, but this year I became the proud grandpa to twins, Peyton and Foster. Both bring many smiles to my face, watching them grow and tackle life.
