I received my Bachelors degree in Biological Sciences from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Maryland Dental School. I completed a two year residency at the University of Maryland Medical center where I received training in anesthesiology, head & neck oncology reconstruction, implantology and facial trauma surgery. After a short time in private practice I returned to the University of Maryland Medical Center to serve as the Division Head of Hospital Dentistry and Director of the Hospital’s Dental Residency Program.
I am an active member of numerous academic groups including the American Dental Association, the Maryland and Pennsylvania State Dental Associations, the Academy of General Dentistry and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology. I also currently sit of on the Board of Directors for the Maryland Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
Although I have returned to private practice, I still maintain part-time associate professor and clinical instructor positions at the Dental School’s Advanced General Dentistry Residency Program providing anesthesiology services for the University’s various post-graduate residency programs. I also teach dental students in the University’s dental clinic in Baltimore, MD and satellite clinic in Frederick, MD. I conducts research in multiple fields, but focus my attention on anesthesiology, implants and new material testing and I have published numerous articles.
I reside in South Central Pennsylvania and have two daughters. I enjoy to fill my free time with playing the guitar, golfing, snow skiing, fishing and water sports.
