I have been practicing dentistry in Utica since 2005, and with the exception of during my schooling, I have called central New York my home for my whole life. I went into private practice with my father as soon as I completed my residency program at St. Luke’s, and I have now taken over the practice since his retirement in 2019. I have continued my involvement with St. Luke’s as a volunteer attending the residency program, and I am a proud member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and an associate fellow in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
I have an amazing wife, Carrie, and two wonderful girls, Emilia and Ella. They are my world outside of dentistry, and we enjoy traveling, camping, taking care of our ever-changing house of pets, and spending time in the Adirondacks. When I get the chance, I love to go golfing at any of the wonderful courses in our area. I feel lucky to be surrounded by wonderful people in all aspects of my life, and I truly enjoy what I do.
