On Being an Orthodontist
I have enjoyed serving as an orthodontist to residents of greater Atlanta and North Georgia for almost 30 years. Watching so many children grow up into self-assured young adults, and seeing so many smiles brighten up the world, has been spectacular.
As an orthodontist, I love to watch everyone grow and change as they move through the orthodontic treatment experience. Seeing individuals transition from feeling self-conscious to being confident around their peers is deeply affecting. I especially appreciate how, with each person I am creating not just a new smile but an outlet where what was hidden can now shine.
Education, Professional Affiliations, and Continuing Education
I obtained my Doctorate of Dental Medicine at the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry. Since completing my orthodontic residency and specialty training, I have been board-certified by the American Board of Orthodontics.
Throughout my career, I have been a constant participant in study groups, always looking into the newest technological advances. Likewise, by attending meetings, lectures, and seminars, and studying the latest literature, I stay at the leading edge of new developments. I am dedicated to delivering clinical excellence for each patient: constant studying and advanced training enable me to provide the best experience and results.
At Family-Braces, LLC
It is a joy to be part of Family-Braces. We have a very committed group of doctors who operate from a patients-first philosophy. And we have great team members, some who have been part of the practice family for a long time and some just coming onboard. We love working with these amazing people and know our patients will adore them, too.
Ours is a small, owner-operated practice that is still able to offer multiple locations for the convenience and flexibility that patients and parents want. We’re small enough, and stable enough, that we have time to get to know each patient as an individual — and that is something we all love:
We transform smiles for our friends!
Beyond the Office
My family and I have resided in Atlanta for more than 25 years. I am devoted to my wife Marlo, who is an amazing woman and incredible mother to our three children: Ryan, Lilya, and Lara. Being surrounded by my family, and including time with my children and supporting their many extracurricular interests, is important to me. I also enjoy outdoor activities, especially running, and love to travel.
