My favorite part about teaching you
Providing a practical approach to dentistry. My presentations provide an insight into a wide array of dental rehabilitation procedures. These range from treatment of gum disease, non-surgical and surgical procedures to save compromised teeth, oral plastic surgical procedures, aesthetic reconstruction, to replacing missing teeth with dental implants, to name a few. Clinical training allows our students to apply their practical and didactic knowledge to treat, help and improve the oral health of our patients.
I might change your mind...
About applying to a specialty program. Many students, when they first start dental school, do not consider specializing in a particular dental field. But if you recognize and appreciate the depth and advancements in the field of periodontology, especially regenerative surgery and periodontal medicine and its impact on whole-body systemic health, you may change your mind.

That I am very dedicated to teaching and to my profession. Teaching runs in my family—both my wife and sister are educators in the dental and medical field.
Also, in 2006 I received the Tarrson Fellowship award by the American Academy of Periodontology. This is a prestigious national award in my specialty. A good education and support of my colleagues and peers has enabled me to share my knowledge with dentists at a local, state, national and international level.
