Hello dear patients of the Durham Region!
I was born and raised in Richmond Hill, Ontario, and after discovering my interest in biology in high school, I decided to pursue a career in health care.
I graduated first class honours with distinction in Biology at York University. I continued with my studies at the University of Western Ontario dental school, where I received the General Medicine award and graduated with honours.
After graduating, I was fortunate enough to work with and receive mentorship from many Dentistry mentors around Ontario.
I spent the first few years practicing in Kirkland Lake and Napanee. These communities were non-fluoridated, leading to a great demand for care. My experience working in Kirkland Lake and Napanee reinforced the importance of chairside manners when caring for my patients. I understand that anxiety is often a barrier for people seeking care, which motivated me to obtain my certifications in nitrous and oral sedation to provide the most comfortable dental experience for my patient.
I am highly passionate about Dentistry and I am constantly striving to improve myself by taking continuing education courses. This allows me to stay at the cutting edge and also provide a wider scope of care for my patients.
Outside of Dentistry, I am admittedly a huge geek. I love reading news about the latest technology and gadgets. There is a possibility that I get as many questions from my friends about smartphone recommendations as I do about Dentistry. Between staying up to date with the latest dentistry and technology, my lovely wife Tracy and I love binge-watching TV shows and trying out new restaurants.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
