About our dental practice
Meet the Doctor
Hello and welcome to our practice. I am a general dentist who enjoys dentistry and am excited about the technological advances in dentistry that have been made in the last few years. Some of those advances that will make your visit with us more comfortable are digital x-rays, CEREC one visit, in-office crowns and inlays, and electric hand pieces (they are quieter).
My studies began at Brevard County Junior College in Cocoa, Florida, then on to Michigan State for a BS in Biochemistry and finally to University of Michigan Dental School, graduation in 1980. I am currently a member of the American Dental Association, The Virginia Dental Association, The Tidewater Dental Association and the Virginia Beach Dental Study Club. I volunteer regularly at the Chesapeake Care Clinic and the Red Cross Dental Clinic in Norfolk.
I have for many years been interested in what it takes to achieve optimal health and longevity, especially such subjects as nutrition, supplements, exercise, and brain health. My hobbies are reading, walking, gardening and growing fruit trees. I am fortunate to work with a talented team of professionals who are as dedicated as I am to delivering the best dental care possible in an environment that is friendly, encouraging and supportive. I look forward to meeting you and serving your needs or wants.
