The Orthodontist

"Find canvases for other people to paint on.  Clear the path for the people above you and you will eventually create a path for yourself."

To start, I'll just be honest and say that I might be a bit different than what you may expect from a doctor or dentist. (No, I'm not different in the crazy sense!)   As an orthodontist for the Kennett Square, PA community, I feel orthodontics is about more than just creating amazing smiles; it is about forming strong relationships and friendships with the patients, families, dental colleagues, and my community.  I want to ensure everyone benefits from the entire orthodontic experience, as well as enjoys beautiful and lasting result!

Beyond that, though, I also believe your orthodontic journey should focus on more than just straight teeth.  It's about letting your confidence grow and your personality shine!  It's about creating a healthy bite for the rest of your life.  It's about realizing there's a unique human being attached to those 28 teeth!


Therefore, my goals for patients are as follows:    

  • To shatter preconceived notions of what a healthcare “experience” is or might be!

  • To 100% guarantee my patients’ satisfaction with whatever it takes to do so!

  • To give my patients a radiant smile that fits seamlessly into their lifestyle and affordably into their budget!

  • To be approachable, honest, and available as a resource for any questions, big or small, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

  • To have them join me in giving back generously and without hesitation to their communities!


When speaking to colleagues in lectures or at conferences, my goal is to provide unbiased, objective, practical information in a dynamic way and give the audience take-home tools to implement immediately.  We've all been to conferences where we've heard great information but  had no easy way to bring that knowledge home.  Similar to my beliefs for my patients, I want to reinvent the way dentists give lectures and present information, not just be their entertainment for the day.  Instead of just showing-off a few successes, my goal is to have attendees LEARN something (from both my own successes and failures) to benefit their own patients and practices!


Thank you for taking an interest in my page and sharing in my journey to help make our community smile just a little more :)
