I am a detail-oriented person by nature, which fits perfectly with the practice of dentistry. Dentistry is never boring to me, since no two procedures or patients’ needs are exactly the same. It is personally fulfilling to change people’s lives by improving their smile and contributing to their overall health. My patients are like family. They have interesting and diverse personalities and lifestyles, which makes every day a special day when they share a little bit of their lives with us.

Outside the Office
I have lived in Tampa Bay my entire life and reside there now with my wife, cat, and our Portuguese Waterdog, Enzo. I enjoy attending Florida Gator Football, traveling to visit our two adult sons, skiing, collecting wine, reading, re-learning to play the piano, and restoring player pianos. We even have one in the office lobby now!
I attend and contribute to various charity events, including the American Cancer Society and Family Resources, and I volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank, Faith Cafe, St. Petersburg Free Dental Clinic, and Mission of Mercy.
