My profession gives me a unique opportunity to be a part of and give back to my community. I get to make a difference in people's lives-make them feel better about themselves and their appearance. I love meeting and interacting with so many different types of people and personalities. Everyone I meet is different; some are shy, outgoing, serious, or funny. I enjoy talking to patients, learning about them, and seeing the young ones grow up before my eyes. Being around so many children definitely keeps me young!

In the Community
I opened the office nine years ago with the main purpose of giving back to and becoming an important part of my community. I sponsor several sports teams, donate services to the schools, go to the schools on health day for presentations, go to the classrooms for talks, and donate mouthguards to the local sports leagues. My wife and I have been involved in raising money for the building of the Westchester Children's Museum and donate to and attend several charity events of the Maria Farreri Children's Hospital.
Outside the Office
I am a native of Bayside in Queens and now reside in Ardsley with my wife, Ellen, our children, Joshua and Sydney, and our dog, Zamy. When I have free time, I like to work out, play golf and tennis, read mystery novels, and spend time with my friends and family. I am also a huge Mets and Giants fan!
