When you have a private dental practice, you have two options, one is to have a group practice, where you have a large number of staff, and you run multiple chairs at the same time, where quality and the time you can spend with each patient suffer greatly, and the other option is to have a small team and see few patients a day, where you can deliver on quality, and spend the necessary time needed to understand the needs and expectations of every patient that comes into the office.
We chose the second option. And with our dedicated team, we deliver what we believe to be the standard of care in dentistry.

About me, your dentist in Laurel, MD:
Since you landed on my profile, what are you looking for, for someone to be your new dentist?
For me, it comes to one word only, and that is trust. I you feel that you can trust me, because you knew someone that I treated, and they told you to call us, or you just did your own online search, checked our website, and you read our reviews, and are trying to make a decision, well either way, I like to personally welcome you.
I am a graduate from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine in 1998, and eventually settled at my current private practice located in Historic Laurel at: 379 Main St. in Laurel, MD.
When I decided to become a dentist, my drive was to make a difference, and after I got my degree, I plunged wholeheartedly to work on my skills, and knowledge while working full time at the office, driven by an insatiable passion to help people, especially those with dental needs, and subsequent self esteem issues.
Today I’ve been to all six continents for my education. I want to give you a cutting edge results that would take into consideration a conservative approach.
I have suffered from a dental phobia for the longest time when I was young, knowing exactly how some people felt about going to a dentist, I am as compassionate and as gentle as you would want a dentist to be.
I am continuing to grow in my passion, wether I am the mentor or the student, in the US or abroad.
Besides dental education, I mentor other dentists on hands-on courses at the Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, in Scottsdale, AZ. I also spend plenty of time learning about leadership, and communication.
When I am not treating patients, I enjoy missionary dental work overseas, traveling, organizing and attending leadership meetings, learning languages ( currently working on my 4th and 5th languages simultaneously) sailing, landscape photography, but most importantly, spending quality time with family and friends.
One of my favorite quotes by Bob Proctor which truly represents what I believe in, has said it all:
“We come this way but once. We can either tiptoe through life and hope that we get to death without being too badly bruised or we can live a full, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams”.
My personal philosophy:
- To provide the most advanced and conservative dentistry humanly possible in a personal and caring environment.
- To achieve optimum outcome in treatment, whether done restoratively only, or through interdisciplinary dentistry.
- To pursue excellence in the art and science of cosmetic and surgical dentistry, by being a lifelong student at the best known mentors.
- To connect dentists from around the globe, who belong to the International Dentists Club which I founded.
- To help my patients, staff, family, colleagues and whom I can reach, explore their full potential and see themselves for what they can be rather than what they are today.
- To train and inspire other dentists from the US and abroad, and to expose them to a level of dentistry they never thought possible.
