The sense of fulfillment that I gain in practicing Orthodontics is truly unparalleled, and I am lucky to call it my profession. The ability to form long-lasting relationships, the blending of both art and science, and the reward of seeing the increased confidence that my patients experience as a result of their treatment are just a few of the things that help make this profession so special. It is my personal commitment to treat each patient as if they are a member of my family, and to achieve the best possible result for their smile, oral health, and overall wellbeing. It is truly a privilege to be a part of such a rewarding profession and I am dedicated to ensuring that my patients benefit from it as much as I do.
Education and Continuing Education
I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree from Colgate University in Hamilton, NY in 2005, where I studied Biology. Following my graduation from Colgate, I earned a Wilderness-EMT certification and spent three years as a professional ski patroller, and ski instructor in Crested Butte, Colorado. Moving back east in 2008, I earned a Master of Arts in Medical Sciences from Boston University School of Medicine.
I moved to New York City in 2010, attending Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, where I earned my Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 2014. Following dental school, I served for three years as a Dental Officer in the United States Navy, achieving the rank of Lieutenant and performing General Dentistry and Oral Surgery procedures in treating Sailors and Marines at Marine Corps Recruit Depot-Parris Island, South Carolina.
My postdoctoral training in Orthodontics was completed at Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. I earned my Master of Science in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics in June 2020, and was awarded the Thomas Cangialosi Award as the most outstanding resident in my class.

Outside the Office
A native New Englander, having grown up in Milford, CT, the region has always held a special place in my heart, and I am excited to call Vermont home! When I am not in the office, I am usually outside doing something active. Skiing is a passion, and on most winter weekends I can be found on the slopes at Mad River or chasing powder in the local backcountry. I am also an avid ice hockey player and play in a local men’s league throughout the winter. Summers find me out mountain biking, running, fly fishing, or on the golf course. My wife, Brooke, is a Nurse Practitioner at UVM Medical Center, and we live in Richmond. We love exploring the mountains, lakes and rivers of northern VT, traveling whenever we can, and checking out the many great restaurants and breweries that the Burlington area has to offer.
