In an effort to become the best dentist possible, I made sure my education didn’t end with graduation from dental school. I have stayed abreast of the ever evolving field of dentistry by attending hundreds of seminars, courses, symposiums and by constantly reading textbooks and journals. Staying up to date with new techniques, materials and technology is a critical ingredient of modern dentistry.
This constant striving for knowledge is part of my nature. My original studies in engineering allow me to nurture a richer understanding of new high tech tools and approaches to advanced dentistry. My technical knowledge is balanced by my fascination with the theory of color and shape which I learned from my mother who was an artist. When I put a critical eye to cosmetic dental procedures I am able to simultaneously combine strong aesthetics with function and durability to create beautiful, healthy smiles.
Having served on the faculty at University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry, Loyola University College of Dentistry and Triton College Department of Laboratory Technology early in my career offered the opportunity to better grasp the basic concepts of dentistry.
Exchanging knowledge with my colleagues is important because dentistry has evolved into such a complex profession that no one dentist has all the ideas. As an active member of the American Dental Association, the Chicago Dental Society, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Odontographic Society and the Academy of Laser Dentistry. I enjoy the regular opportunity to share successful information with other leading dentists.
I am honored to have practiced dentistry here in the Streeterville area of Chicago and now on Michigan Avenue near the historic Chicago Water Tower landmark.
