“As a second generation dentist, I followed in my father’s footsteps right to the dental chair! I’m a graduate of Tuft’s University School of Dental medicine, in Boston, where I earned both D.M.D. and M.S.D. degrees. After I completed my post graduate education, I returned to my native New Jersey to be near family. In 2004, after one too many snow storms, my family and I headed south to sunny Tampa Bay, Florida, which has become my permanent home and I’ve never looked back!”
