I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. After graduating from Long Island University with a business degree, I immediately went to work for Union Carbide Corporation, handling government contracts. I quickly became restless and needed a greater challenge, so I left the company in 1970, after almost 2 years. I returned to school part-time so I could accumulate the necessary requirements for dental school. In 1972, I began my journey on this new road...and never looked back.
I started practicing dentistry in Washington, D.C. in 1977, first downtown on 19th Street, N.W., and then on M Street, N.W., until 1990. One weekend, I went to a small community in Southern Maryland called Solomon's Island to buy a boat. I bought the boat, fell in love with this quaint waterfront town, sold my practice in D.C., moved to Solomon's and, again... never looked back. I now live with my wife and our dog in a lovely home on a peaceful knoll overlooking a beautiful creek in Mechanicsville. I love my home, practicing dentistry, and living life. I believe in living this life to the fullest and have seen how beautiful, healthy smiles can positively affect people's lives. I enjoyed practicing in Leonardtown, in St. Mary's County, from 1990 to 2010, and continue to practice in our La Plata, MD office.
