It is my privilege as a dentist to serve patients to the best of my ability. Dentistry is my life’s passion. Blending the art and science of dental care, I am able to create truly amazing smiles. I am most excited by the friendships I develop and the loyalty our patients show. Providing a treatment is always stimulating and motivating, but the relationships that develop with our team and our patients are the most rewarding. Here at Brandywine Dental Care, we measure success one patient, and one smile, at a time.
As a third generation dentist, I was able to see firsthand how my father and his patients loved each other. I always loved to watch the way my grandfather and father discussed the advances in our profession. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful profession that makes such a profound impact on people’s lives. Dentistry is much more than a job or a skill; it is my stadium to shine professionally, and the successes in helping our patients have brought me great joy.
Education and Continuing Education
I am a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore College of Dentistry where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. Since graduating, I have taken many hours of advanced training in dental implants, Invisalign®, CEREC®, endodontics, and periodontics. I have also completed advanced levels and trained with some of the best dentists in our country and the world through the Hornbrook Group. This training includes all phases of cosmetic care, full-mouth reconstruction, and treatment of TMD. While continuing education is mandated for licensure, my team and I are true CE junkies! Staying ahead of the curve and being innovative allows us to provide better care to our patients and it creates an amazing environment for my team.

About My Team
I am fortunate to have a team made up of people who strive to make our patients’ experience the best possible in every way. My dental assistants are always engaged in learning the current techniques and take tremendous pride in maintaining our state-of-the-art office. My hygienists take great care of our patients when they come in for their dental cleanings and gum treatments, but they also know that oral health is a very important piece of overall health, and they continue to study and stay abreast of all the current health topics. Our treatment coordinators understand the importance of oral health, and they are excellent at advocating for our patients and helping them to achieve the care they desire. Most of our patients are juggling crazy schedules, and most of them have concerns about financing. Our treatment coordinators are great at finding suitable times and staying within our patients’ budgets.
Outside the Office
I grew up in Coral Springs, FL and now live just over the district line in Bethesda. My wife, Tracy, is a nurse and graduate of Georgetown University. We have three wonderful children; Samantha is nine and our twins, Emma and Katherine, are seven. Our Golden-doodle named Max keeps us all company at home. I love spending time with my wife and kids, and am involved in my children’s schools and with their recreational activities. I’m a huge Washington Capitals, Nationals, and Redskins fan, and love fishing, boating, skiing, and going to Bethany beach in my free time.
