I grew up in Valley Stream, NY and went to Stony Brook University for my pre-dental education. I then did a Masters in Oral Health and went to dental school at Boston University. I did my residency at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, NY. I became a dentist because I loved that my orthodontist loved what he did for a living. My hobbies include dancing salsa and bachata, reading and writing, cycling and spinning, strength training and meditation. I also love spending time with my family and friends. I am currently writing a book about friendship with some of my friends. I am also training under Dr. Pam Popper from the Netflix documentary “Forks Over Knives” to become a health educator. I like working with Smile New York Outreach because I love kids.
