About Your Dentist
“We believe that every interaction, whether it be with a patient, team member, family or stranger, be a positive encounter that leaves both parties feeling good. A feeling that we care, that we have their best interest at heart, and that they can feel safe in our care.”
“My goal is to be a sympathetic and knowledgeable advocate for my patients and help each one feel comfortable, relaxed, and engaged in the process of their oral health and general well-being. Every patient presents unique challenges and requirements; therefore, each patient deserves thorough and individualized care. We will work together to create beautiful, lasting outcomes that will enhance both your smile and your life!”

Life & Hobbies
“I grew up in Toronto and practiced martial arts in my younger years. After competing internationally with Team Canada, I decided to pursue academics and found my dream career in dentistry. I love visiting National parks and trying out new local food with my wife, Lauren, who is also a dentist in Harrisonburg. I like to read self-help/leadership books and listen to dental podcasts. I am currently learning Spanish on Duolingo and need to keep my streak alive!”
