After graduation, he was one of only fifteen doctors

Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry. He then

Cosmetic Dentistry and then passed the demanding examinations to earn his accreditation in that Academy. Soon after that he was selected to sit on the Accreditation Board of Examiners,
and eventually was elected President of the AACD in 2001.
He also pursued excellence in implant dentistry and in 1996 earned his Fellowship in
the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.

maintains his own dental laboratory right in the office.

testimonials of the
quality of his work and the depth of his caring.
