Orthodontics is a merging of science and art. I find it very rewarding to provide individualized care to so many unique people every day. Sharing in the lives of my patients on a daily basis is one of my favorite aspects of working in this field. I have the best patients in the world and even though I help to create their smiles, my patients make me smile every day.
Education and Continuing Education
I completed dental school at the University of Toronto, earning my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in 1994. I continued at the University of Manitoba where I obtained my Certificate in Orthodontics and a Master of Science degree.
I am involved in continuing education courses because it is important to me to provide my patients with the most current orthodontic treatments and trends. I have participated in courses with the Incognito Appliance System and Vector TAS, and I continually take courses offered from the Aligntech Institute and the Invisalign Orthodontist Study Club. I am an active member of the Toronto Orthodontic Club and the University of Toronto Orthodontic Alumni Association.

My team is made up of fun, energetic people, who are warm and caring individuals. I feel like they are a part of my family and while we are serious about the service we provide, we have a great sense of humour and share in laughter!
Outside the Office
With the exception of a few years in private practice in Huntsville, Ontario, and studying orthodontics at the University of Manitoba, I have lived in Toronto my entire life. When I’m not helping to create beautiful smiles, I enjoy exercising, gardening, playing tennis, and spending time with my family and friends.
