Biography

I maintain an implant dentistry practice in Burbank, California. I also perform all implant related procedures such as bone replacement grafting and complex implant reconstructions.

I am Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID) which means I am Board Certified.

Since 1969, less than 400 dentists in the United States have passed this rigorous Board Certification process. This honorable title makes me extremely well qualified in all dental implant and bone grafting procedures. This is implant dentistry’s “Hall of Fame.”

In addition, I am specially trained and licensed to offer IV sedation for the comfort of all patients who desire this service. I perform hundreds of implant and bone graft procedures per year, which has made me a local expert. It's not about placing hundreds of implants a year, it's about placing a single implant flawlessly, and repeating that process every time with the care and personalized care that each patient deserves.

My compassion, enthusiasm and passion for implant dentistry sets me apart from my peers. My philosophy of treatment is to genuinely treat all patients like I would treat my own family. Because I love what I do, my standards are very high which translates into precision dentistry. In fact, my practice was voted the best dental office in Burbank, CA by the local newspaper!

As a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology, Fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists, and Fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, I attend all of the major yearly implant meetings. This allows me to remain current on all the new research and constant advances in implant dentistry.

On a local level, I hold lecture and hands-on implant courses in my office which local doctors and staff are invited to attend throughout the year.

I am a native of Burbank, CA and graduated second in my class from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry with the highest honors (OKU). I then completed a formal two-year residency in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dental Anesthesia at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.

It is this formal training that allows me to perform dental implantology, bone grafting and IV sedation. I am also a clinical instructor at UCLA, teaching sedation and surgery. I am also trained in Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), the highest level of CPR.

I have structured my practice around my passion for dental implants and their related procedures. I am also a speaker for a leading dental implant manufacturer where I teach other dentists the ins and outs of dental implants.

In my free time, I enjoy classic cars, skiing and dining out. I live in the area with my wife, three children and our yellow Labrador, Bentley.
